The World Wine Tour workshop is back! This one-day workshop exploring the world’s wines is a relaxed day where guests can enjoy fine wines in a fun and laid back environment.
The World Wine Tour workshop is a chance to learn how to taste wines, all in a casual setting. It’s suitable for anyone, from beginner to enthusiast. During the day you taste 16 wines. There is also a three-course lunch included. This is an informal approach to wine tasting with no wine snobs allowed!
Run by Gilbert Winfield from Winfield Wines who are flexible wine tasting professionals, providing a variety of wines to entice and intrigue the senses. Gilbert’s expertise on wine is frequently sought after. He is so well considered that he has made appearances on Eggheads, Come Dine With Me, James May’s Man Lad, National Geographic’s ‘Blow Your Mind’ and has recently appeared as a wine expert for Sky News. He is a fully qualified WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) tutor, yet teaches with humour and lightness of touch.
During the day Gilbert will teach you how to taste wine the way experts do. He will give you knowledge on old world vs new world wines and the major grape varieties. He will also give you inside knowledge into why some wines cost more and how to tell the difference. He will help you with wine and food matching and the day will end with blind tasting to test your newly acquired knowledge.
The One Day World Wine Tour Workshop will be hosted on 11th May from 10.30am -4pm at Bank Birmingham. Bank Birmingham is a modern space on Brindleyplace with impeccable service and gorgeous food. The event will be held in a private glass room allowing both privacy for the workshop and beautiful views.
