Cecile was marvellous. I can’t recommend this night enough. I went with a friend who I’ve travelled the world with - we’ve wine tasted in New Zealand and Australia a few times and no one has ever taught us how to taste wine like Cecile....More

Cecile’s wine tasting sessions - I have now attended several, each even more informative and enjoyable than the last. She certainly makes learning a pleasure. Cecile’s encyclopaedic knowledge of wines is equalled only by her entertaining presentation of the subject. The wines chosen, ranging from...More

I have never done anything like this before so was unsure what to expect, especially with whether I was able to actually 'drink' the wine. It was fantastic, very informal and Cecile was passionate about wine which came across in a fun way. I definitely...More

I booked for a 'Bordeaux vs New World' tasting, attracted by the fact that Cecile would be showing three Bordeaux wines from her private collection. The tasting was held in the Green Man pub in Winchester, in a separate building ideally suited for such a...More

An excellent day tasting 12 different wines including champagne. Cecile was a superb tutor. Very informative and entertaining. We learned a lot during the day which will make choosing wines less of a "hit and miss" purchase.
