Prebooking is essential
The wine & cheese were great but your chat was the standout. The factual stuff on its own was brilliant but I felt the personal anecdotes lifted it up a level.
I highly recommend! Such fun and amazing wines.
Joanne is fabulous
Better than we could possibly have hoped!
Joanne's depth of knowledge and her clarity in
communicating it are astonishing, every question we asked spurred a
fascinating and engaging delve into the wine world, and we learned so
much more than we would have anticipated. By far the stand out, however,
was Joanne's deft guidance through the process of actually engaging with
the experience of wine. This has, without hyperbole, genuinely changed
our approach to wine, opening our eyes to a hitherto unanticipated world
A really enjoyable way to spend the afternoon
Joanne's friendly, disarming and knowledgeable style of presentation enabled all of us to learn something new about wine and wine pairing.

We had a great experience with Joanne!
Highly reccomend for anyone who always picks up the same bottle of wine - She has encouraged me to try wines I wouldn't normally buy.
A lovely wine tasting session with Joanne.
Joanne is friendly and makes a tasting session fun and you will not feel out of your depth with her.
Joanne's an absolute delight and very knowledgeable.
Joanne went through the basics of how to taste wine. We swirled, we slurped, we sniffed. After two glasses, I was already feeling like a pro!
Joanne was incredibly knowledgable and personable. The wines had a good variety, were quality selections.
