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.

WINE BLOGGER WRITING ABOUT CANNY GRAPES
Bron and Hannah are two working mums in Perth who decided to start a wine blog despite having no experience in the wine industry. The fun part of wine blogging is that you get to taste and learn about wine. Read here the Goon Bags blog about ‘how to drink wine’ including six simple wine tasting tips.
Casey Bryan who shares her wine experiences via her wine blog Travelling Corkscrew joined me at one of my wine tasting classes earlier this year. Together we travelled through Italy, Spain, France and Australia learning about sparkling wine & champagne. Check out what she wrote about Canny Grapes Wine Tasting Classes here. Casey also loves Thai food, so it’s no surprise that she attended my regular wine pairing dinners “Aromatics & Thai’ at Itsara which she also shared on her blog.
