The 5 week Introduction to Wine Course run by Armadale Cellars is highly recommended. I was initially uncertain whether the introductory course was appropriate for me, as I have experienced many great wines over many decades. I finished the course with no doubt. Apart from gaining greater appreciation about wine production, I now have a better understanding of the differences between old world and new world wines, and most importantly I am now gaining more enjoyment from the wine I consume. I will definitely do more courses at Armadale Cellars.

Really enjoyed the information provided. Lecturers for weeks 1, 2 & 3 exceptionally good, really appreciated the information delivered. It provided enough information wanting me to ask for more. My only point I would review would be the need for some nibbles, when coming from a long day at work and wine, not always a good recipe.

A great, thorough, informative and entertaining introduction into the world of wine. I came away with a wealth of knowledge that I can't wait to build on as I continue to discover different styles that I never felt confident to explore before. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in expanding their wine knowledge from a fun and expert team, or if you just want to test out your palate with the abundance of tastings. Just like with wine, there's something for everyone.
