Get Comfy with Wine
Do you like wine but not know much about it?
Do you find yourself:
- relying on go-to labels because you're afraid of making a poor choice?
- feeling overwhelmed when faced with tens of labels to choose from?
- opting for the "second cheapest" on the wine list because it's always the safest?
Then you'll love our Get Comfy with Wine series.
Don't let wine be the "unknown". Get confident with your choices as our two Sommeliers Faye and Irene teach you the basics, cut through the jargon and give you tips and tricks to look and sound like a pro - all whilst you enjoy 8 great Italian wines.
We answer your questions on:
- Main grape varieties, appellations, smart ways to buy wines
- How to pair wine with food with confidence
- The best ways to buy, store and cellar wines
We'll use two bottles each week to illustrate what we're learning (you don't have to drink them on the night!). Each session will last 90mins - 2hrs. We'll also have breakout moments so you'll be able to socialise in smaller groups - a great way of doing things with friends without leaving the house. After four weeks, you'll be a confident and savvy wine lover.
WHAT OUR PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT GET COMFY:
“I have always enjoyed wine but I didn’t know why I enjoyed it! During the course I realised that wine is complex and I’ll never be an expert but you don’t have to – it’s fine to just enjoy it. Now when I go to buy wine, I pay attention to the terms on the labels and the alcohol and I think “wow I learnt something!”. I found the Get Comfy course fun, to the point and helped me understand the basics about wine. I definitely feel more confident about talking about wine, have a better understand of what I like and I’m not afraid to tell others when I don’t like something.” MIRKKA RISSA,
“Wine menus in restaurants meant very little to me beyond the wines I knew well and I was very reluctant to experiment. Choosing wines when entertaining friends was a challenge as well and I tended to stick to the favourites or resort to google! Get Comfy offered the opportunity to learn all the basics and much more in a relaxed and fun environment combining a learning experience with a good night "out". Faye and Irene are passionate about wines but without pretentiousness or snobbery. On our recent trip away, I asked for the wine menu and for the first time ever, recognised many of the grape varieties listed. I felt confident that I understood what I was looking at as opposed to drawing a complete blank. I've even started experimenting with wines in restaurants that I would never have gone for in the past - success! We enjoy wine more than ever with good food and are no longer intimidated by wine lists or overwhelmed by a shelf full of wine bottles!”
“Choosing wine in a wine store I would pick out bottles that looked expensive and classic but I found the choice just overwhelming. Get Comfy was fun and easy. The entire session was a no judgment zone and it was great to enjoy it from the comfort of home. I also loved learning about how some wines could taste like, just by reading the varieties and appellations which makes buying wine a lot easier and less risky. I’m now more adventurous in drinking and buying wine and I am enjoying wine more! I discovered wines on the course that I wouldn’t have picked myself and loved them!”
