Let’s scale it right back to basics. Maybe you would like to know a little more about how to taste wine in the first place, identify varieties you like, and be in the know of basic food and wine pairing.

You’re in need of a little Wine Tasting 101, and at Happs Wines they make it fun, educational, and delicious. Happs believe wine should be accessible for everyone, and we couldn’t agree more.

Sit down and be guided through a tutorial (and tasting) of eight wines, and with the help of your wine tasting reference sheet and guide, take the time to connect with your own unique palete. Is that Black Plum, Blackberry or Black Cherry you’re tasting…? Finish the class with a blind tasting, and really put your new skills to the test.
