Five week Discovery Course

Five week Discovery Course



From 28h May we move to fully Interactive Sessions on Zoom

A new era is dawning for everyone involved in classrooms and events. Using modern technology, we can enjoy learning about our favourite wines  from the comfort and safety of our own homes. This has the added advantage that nobody needs to be the “designated driver”. Using Zoom video conferencing is just like being in the room with George, who will, as ever educate, inform and entertain you for about an hour.

A full programme to suit every interest and level of knowledge has been designed, in differing event styles.

Thursday Tastings

Following on from our Facebook events, these are informal with George taking you on a fun but educational experience exploring two wines every week.  The format for these events is that George will pick two wine styles and let you know what he will be drinking but it's entirely up to you whether you buy exactly the same wine.  As these are interactive, you can question, comment and analyse just as you would in a physical tasting.

All the following five sessions can be purchased individually at £15 per screen or for best value this booking gives you all five for just £50, saving £25 and just £10 per household per week.

  • 28th May – Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough NZ vs Loire Valley)
  • 4th June – Cabernet Sauvignon (Bordeaux vs “Somewhere Hot”)
  • 11th June – Chardonnay (Chablis vs Australia/South America/California)
  • 18th June – Pinot Noir (Burgundy vs New Zealand)
  • 25th June – Malbec (Argentina vs Cahors)

All YOU have to do is purchase a ticket from the Milton Keynes Wine School website by clicking the "BOOK" button below, as you would normally. A ticket entitles ALL members of your household to join in. There is no need to buy one ticket per person. Once your ticket is purchased, you will receive a confirmation email with your ZOOM web link and password 2 days before the event itself.

Then pop out and buy (or buy online) two wines to compare. See below for the details on wines for each week’s event (these sessions are designed to be fun, do NOT get too worried if you can’t find the exact wine match).


Each session is priced at £15 per screen per week, but by buying several weeks together (see below), prices start from just £10 per screen, per week.


France vs New World - a five week discovery course priced at £50, saving £25 on buying 5 weeks individually

Take care, keep drinking wine responsibly and I hope you and your family can join me at 7pm on Thursdays. Bring some (virtual) friends too!
