Wine Tastings for 2014

Wine Tasting Evenings…….

 

Laura, our new face for our wine tasting evenings

Laura brings with her a wealth of wine trade experience and knowledge gained during her career with Carlsberg UK.  Here she advised a range of restaurants, hotels and bars on their wine offerings and helped train their staff, as well as running wine related events and tastings for customers.  She also supported the sales team she worked with in relation to wines and spirits. Laura is currently studying towards her Diploma in Wines and Spirits which is viewed universally as the stepping stone to the Master of Wine Qualification.   Laura will be fully responsible for the day to day running of The Wine Academy and the delivery of both WSET Training and events such as the First Friday Wine and Food evenings at Chapters Hotel.

These Wine evenings offer our guests the chance to learn about wine in a relaxed and informal way, in the fantastic setting of Chapters Hotel.

These evenings are aimed at people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more. The evenings consist of a tutored tasting of at least 7 wines conducted by Laura Young, Director of The Wine Academy.

The evenings are relaxed and informal, we want to share our passion for wine and not bamboozle you with Jargon!
