Wine Club

The Spectator Wine School

The Spectator wine courses are a unique opportunity to learn about wine with each of The Spectator’s Wine Club partners. Each merchant will give one class on their specialist region.

The course will last 8 weeks and the maximum capacity of each class will be 25 people, ensuring individual attention. The final session will be a champagne tasting hosted by Pol Roger Champagne. The Wine School is for beginners and wine enthusiasts who’d like to learn more. The first class covers the basics from how to taste wine to the importance of terroir. The next six classes cover a different wine region, and the final class is all about Pol Roger Champagne. Students will have the opportunity to taste wine with Jonathan Ray, as well as receiving a certificate from one of our editors at the end of course Pol Roger Party.
