One Day Wine Appreciation Course Saturday (10am - 4pm)

AUD $330.00
  • Duration: 6 Hours
  • Location: Pyrmont, NSW


Led by either Master of Wine, acclaimed author and educator Mr Rob Geddes, or Paul Huet, Sommelier and WSET presenter, this One Day course is a perfect day for someone who is looking to further their own personal journey with wine. 

The aim of the course is to let you discover what you like and why you like it.

Level: This course is aimed at people with some prior tasting experience, however the course is very comprehensive and will cover all aspects of tasting and wine.

nb. The One Day course and 4 week course cover the same content - they are merely run as two separate formats in order to allow participants to attend whichever format is preferable.


Rob is a master at identifying individuals own palates and guiding them on their way to enjoying wine. Rob will lead you through topics including: 

  • How to taste wine
  • Flavours and aromas
  • Regional and varietal characteristics
  • Food and wine matching
  • Trends in wine
  • Winemaking techniques


You will get to taste 30+ wines from a mixture of boutique wineries and industry icons such as Shaw and Smith, Wynns, Curly Flat, Tyrrell's and Seppeltsfield, as well as a number of international wines.


The day runs from 10am - 4pm and is broken into the following sessions:

  1. Introduction (3 wines)
  2. Champagne and Sparkling (4 wines)
  3. Whites (9 wines)
  4. Reds (10 wines)
  5. Fortified and Desert Wine (4 wines)


In addition to these wines, some of our personal favourites will also be available for tasting throughout the day.
