Canny Grapes has been residing at Maylands favourite neighbourhood bar Swallow Bar since February 2017 hosting Perth most popular wine tasting class ‘Sparkling & Champagne’, Anja’s expertise. Each wine tasting class is based on Canny Grapes wine travels, wine experiences as well as selected grape varieties and wine regions, inviting wine lovers to explore the world of wine continuously. With Anja’s love for Spanish wines, she also hosts regular classes at Leederville’s Spanish Tapas Bar Duende focussing on Spain’s vast wine regions and indigenous grape varieties. Each month you are able to go on a different wine journey. Canny Grapes also teamed up with Trio Wine Bar in Mount Lawley. All three venues are all passionate wine lovers themselves, perfect for CANNY GRAPES monthly fun and educational Wine Tasting Classes which are complimented by delicious small food plates, matching the wines we taste.

Anja’s classes are very informative, well researched and presented in a friendly, fun and highly engaging manner. If you enjoy tasting new and interesting wines with old and new friends this is a fantastic way to share and learn. Anja also offers great tips as to sourcing less well known wines which you are bound to want to try again!
