Our popular wine course begins with an introduction to wine tasting. Over the 3 weeks we will explore wine styles, classic grape varieties and some of the more unusual ones from around the world.
Even if you have been on a course before it’s worth keeping up to date. The wine world is constantly changing and this course is always a good opportunity to taste new wines, discover new regions or rediscover old ones.
The course costs £95 per person for 3 weeks. This includes all lectures and notes, plus a tasting kit consisting of 6 ISO tasting glasses, corkscrew and pen.
Join us for our next wine masterclasses. Each session will be limited to a maximum of 16 people. This small group session will provide a great opportunity to ask the wine questions you have always wanted to. These classes will be suitable for all levels of wine knowledge and a fun way to try 6 different wines.
The classes will be taken by Wine Educator Alastair Bell A.I.W.S. Alastair is a wine lecturer at Queens University Belfast, Institute of Lifelong Learning and the winner of the NI Wine Taster of the year in 2000. He has worked in the wine trade over a number of years.

We are delighted to welcome Hunter’s Winemaker James Macdonald back to DWS. Taking after his Father, Peter & his Aunt, Jane Hunter he is committed to the worldwide success of Hunter’s Wines.
In the last 20 years the province of Marlborough has moved from virtual obscurity to become New Zealand’s largest and best-known wine region with a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest Sauvignon Blanc. This huge potential was something that was recognised back in 1983 by Jane Hunter and her late husband Ernie when they founded their first fledgling winery in the picturesque Wairau Valley.
Hunter’s Wines have won more than 100 gold medals at national and international wine competitions. With a reputation for consistently producing the highest quality wines year after year, Hunter’s was one of the first wineries to put Marlborough firmly on the New Zealand wine map.
Join James for a tasting of the stunning wines of Hunter’s award winning range followed by a buffet supper.
