Wine Tasting Classes
Canny Grapes fun and educational wine tasting classes are about tasting and exploring the world of wine. I’m a grape lover who continuously travels and explores all things wine. I love taking people on a journey, tasting delicious wines, exploring wine regions, terroir and wine styles, learn about taste, aroma and colour while discovering a story or two about the wines and the talented winemakers.
Canny Grapes Wine Tasting Classes are held monthly at Swallow Bar in Maylands and Duende in Leederville. Every class runs for 2 hours and includes tasting of 6-7 wines paired with delicious small plates. Swallow Bar and Duende are the perfect venues to enjoy a glass of wine after the class or staying for dinner.
