Wine and spirit tasting

“Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.” Francis Bacon

What better way to spend your time than beside a roaring open fire, sipping wines, beers or spirits with good company and fine food!

Workshop outlineiain and wine
With over 15 years’ experience in wine and spirits, Iain Hargreaves will take you through the pleasure of tasting fabulous wines or spirits with an understanding of how they were made, where they come from, what to drink it them with and whether you should drink now or squirrel them away to mature in the future! Discover the art of wine tasting and spirit tasting, the principles of recognising the main grape varieties, wine styles or, for the adventurous non-drivers the differences between whisky and whiskey.

You can leave the selection to us or you can select from one of our following suggested workshops:

• Food and Wine – the Perfect Match
Learn the principles of matching wine and food in a relaxed atmosphere. Choose the perfect wines to complement a dinner specially designed and cooked at the award winning Driftwood Spars.
• Tasting Tour

• New World vs Olde Worlde
Food, wine, unique holidays, stag dos, hen parties or family getaways where you can learn a new skill, art or craft. Aggie Arts, in St Agnes Cornwall, has it all!
Compare and contrast modern and more traditional wines.
 • Sparkling Wine and Champagne
