We received a gift voucher from our son as a present to attend Cecile Bergart wine tasting event.
It was very interesting and enjoyable evening with an amazing amount of interesting facts on the grape, climate and composition on wine and how it is produced, a marvellous insight giving a sense of appreciation for fine wines.
Cecile made the evening fun packed with her very vibrant personality a lot of fun !
We would definitely like to go to another tasting event.

6 great reasons why I loved the wine tasting day.

Cecile ran a really positive and upbeat wine tasting/learning experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone in the Bournemouth/ Poole area who considers themselves to be a bit of a "foodie" with a love for wine.

I'm highly likely to book more wine tasting experiences with Cecile, for the following reasons... (but mainly because of point 6)

1.
I like wine. Cecile serves really nice wine.

2.
I met some really interesting, funny and sociable people. A great way to broaden your social circle.

3.
The food provided by the venue (Guildhall Tavern) was excellent, so it had all the makings for a great day out.

4.
I now understand why I like the wine I do, and why I don't like wine I don't. This now means I'm less likely to waste money on wine I don't like in the future (Every bottle's a gamble right?)

5.
Cecile delivered the information in a really engaging way, and I hung on every word. That's quite impressive as Cecile crammed a huge amount of information into the time spent together.

6.
What I learned today now means I can buy better wine, for less money. Even if I hated everything about the day (Which I didn't), I am now financially better off over a 12 month period. I'll spend less money on better champagnes for special occasions, I'll serve really great red wines at BBQ's and parties in the summer, and I can pick up better alternatives to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which has been my go to white wine for a while now.

This is wine deconstructed. It's not pretentious. It's a really interesting, fun day out and it's great value for money.

Thanks Cecile, see you again soon!

Despite a mishap with the venue details on the website we had a fantastic evening learning the basics of pairing wines with foods using Spanish wines. Everyone in the room genuinely learned a lot and Cecile's knowledge is very impressive. Overall, very good value

Cecile is a fun and vibrant character who brings the evening to life and teaches you all about the history and geography of wine. Sounds boring? Well it isn't. She keeps you engaged, generally interested and relates it to your specific experiences which is fascinating.

The wine is flowing and absolutely top notch, the tuition is excellent and I've definitely learnt allot. I will definitely be coming back again with some friends to enjoy.
