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.
