Chardonnay – love it or hate it? And how about Cabernet Sauvignon? These are two grape varieties that seem to provoke extreme views. But, if you hate them, what are the alternatives and are they more to your taste? Or, have you just been unlucky in the bottles you’ve tasted and might you be convinced by a different type of Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon? We’ll explore the options (with tastings, of course) so that you can make your own mind up in this one day course suitable for all abilities. The cost of the wines tasted (max £12 per person, payable to the tutor on the day) will be shared.
Please bring a packed lunch.

Tutor – Ian Abrahams
I started my wine career taking visitors round Harvey’s wine museum in Bristol where I also studied for and passed the Wines and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Diploma, a high level professional qualification.
I now work as a freelance Wine Educator, certified by WSET to run their courses which are aimed at professionals starting out in the wine industry.
But, you don’t have to be a professional – or even have any expertise – to enjoy one of my courses as I love to run wine evenings and courses for local organisations, groups and individuals where my aim is to make learning about wine approachable, free from jargon and fun.
I also write a regular wine blog, Bristol Wine Blog, which can be found at www.winetalksandtastings.wordpress.com
