Wine Tasting Course
New to wine tasting and want to know more? Know what you like but want to broaden your horizons? Our introductory wine course will help you to understand wine and make better choices...but also have fun!

This introductory course takes approximately two hours. You will be greeted with a glass of Holmfirth Vineyardís finest to wake your palate before we get started!

Taking this course at a working vineyard and winery is a unique advantage. Led by one of our experienced winemaking team, you will be able to view the vineyard and winery first-hand, gaining a better understanding of the whole process from grape to bottle.

The Tasting
The tasting takes place in our modern Tasting Lounge that overlooks the 7 acre vineyard.  We wíll taste more than 6 wines from around the world and offer guidance to enhance your appreciation of the wine.
  • You will learn how to assess wine like a professional, utilising all your senses.  Our unique use of the Aromaster kit will help you identify the individual aromas in the wine.
  • You will learn what to look for in wine and how to recognise the key components: tannins, acidity, sugar and alcohol.
  • We wíll introduce to the language of wine and teach you how to make tasting notes.
  • Youíll learn how to assess the quality and ageworthiness of a wine.
  • Weíll provide nibbles and teach you how to match wine with food.
First and foremost this tasting is supposed to be a relaxed, fun way to learn about wine and meet like-minded people. To conclude we will introduce the competitive element: You'll take part in a blind tasting and use all the skills you've picked up to successfully assess the wines in question. Our best taster will get a bottle of Holmfirth wine to take home with them!

An informative and entertaining evening thatís not to be missed!
