The Magnum package is an exciting introduction to wine, unleashing the senses with practical wine experiments and easily digested theory. Your staff will be able to help decipher your wine list and advise guests on wine choices, adding value to their service and enhancing your guest’s experience. This package includes an introduction to wine theory and a wine workshop.

Running Time: 4 Hours (Including break)


Wine and our Senses. We look at the interplay between sight, taste, touch and smell and how they are all important in relation to wine.

Old World and New. The difference between regions around the world and what we need to remember when talking about the two.

Stickies and Sparkling. Dessert and sparkling wines and key terms for both.

The wine detective. Deciphering bottles, closures and labels. What can a wine bottle tell us about the contents before we even taste it? Very useful when someone asks about a wine we haven’t yet tried!

Wine handling. Temperatures, cork removal, glass choices and decanting. The do’s and don’ts of wine service.

In the wine workshop, together we explore the primary tastes experienced in wines using your very own your wine list. With practical experiments delving into Acidity, Sweetness, Bitterness and Alcohol your team will learn how to identify these characteristics generally and then how to use this information as a tool to make recommendations to guests.
