Note:  Winemusing is committed to focusing on wines that are sourced from local stores so that you can have better confidence in your own wine purchases. Occasionally wines will be used from other sources.

Winemusing Sessions are not a sales presentation, although there may be wines offered for sale by the venue on the night. Winemusing Sessions are genuinely independant wine masterclasses.

These masterclasses are enjoyable for all levels of wine knowledge from beginners to intermediate/advanced.

This is a brief outline of the courses available at the moment. Please scroll through below to see more detail:
