The evening was relaxed and informative. Lara taught us a great deal, dispelling a lot of mythology around wine. We will definitely do another one!

Great evening with Lara. Thoroughly enjoyed all the wines, the company and the education. I attended a Women’s Institute skills session. I can recommend it.
