Launched to help foodies and wine-lovers make lockdown more bearable, The Wine Workshop offers an exclusive platform providing access to drinks experts in a unique package bringing together food, wine, learning and fun.
The concept reaches beyond an anodyne video conference call. Indeed, The Wine Workshop will each week offer a vibrant, interactive class, led by sparky luminaries such as Jane Parkinson (Saturday Kitchen Live and Stylist's wine expert), Douglas Blyde (ES Magazine) and Master of Wine, Nancy Gilchrist.
When you sign up to an 60 MINUTE class, you’ll be sent a hamper for two, full of 3 wines and 3 inspiring and complimentary dishes crafted by the team’s specialist luxury caterers This treasure trove, which may be delivered nationally, will also include the log-in code and details for your particular workshop.
Your expert will then charismatically guide you through the contents of the hamper - encouraging you to explore your senses as they teach you about why certain foods harmonise with specific wines and much more.
Below is a list of first-ever The Wine Workshop classes - with more added in due course. Head to https://www.thewineworkshop.club/ to book your spot.
