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 learning everything about wine. I love taking people on a journey, tasting delicious wines, discovering wine regions, terroir and wine styles, learning about taste, aroma and colour while sharing a story or two about the wines and the talented winemakers.

Previous classes included a Pinot Road Trip, French Affair, Spanish Fiesta, Champagne Sunday, Winter Reds, Xmas in a glass - Fortified Wines, Chardonnay Road Trip, Wines of Northern Spain, La vie en rosé, Spanish Rosados and a Rosé Sparkling Class. See below the current wine class schedule and feel free to enquire about future wine tasting classes here
