Very down-to-earth explanations about how to taste and describe wine, so that you can find the perfect one in a supermarket isle. Quite casual with no hard sell on the longer courses or exams you can take.

I attended a Prosecco tasting evening with some friends from work and it was very informative and a lot of fun. Mark was very passionate and knowledgeable. We hope to attend another evening in the future. Thank you Mark!
