Single Class Course
Many people would like to know more about wine. But the subject is daunting. This course is for people who know little but would like to know lots. It teaches people how to appreciate wine from a range of perspectives: taste/culture/history/fun / joie de vivre.
Nice to win an award! I was one of three writers shortlisted for a prize by Hungarian Wines.

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
