Sharing wine knowledge across the Midlands
Professional services and consultancy
Wine is amazing. Complicated, but amazing.
Wine is a mix of science, horticulture, art, business and
sheer experience. Which is all the more reason to get you and your staff educated and comfortable with the topic.
Whether you work in hospitality, are an aspiring vineyard owner, or simply a dedicated wine enthusiast, we would love to help you improve your wine knowledge in 2021.
Demystifying wine gives us a great amount of satisfaction,
so if you would like to learn more about winemaking, wine tasting, or viticulture (or teach your staff the above), you've come to the right place.
There is a big difference between learning something from a book, and experiencing it for yourself. Let those who grow & make wine first-hand help you see it in a whole new light.
Whether you manage a wineshop, restaurant or pub, and whether you want a one on one, or train all your staff, we can help you understand wine.

How are grapes grown
