James Flewellen (author of the Oxford Wine Blog) and I are pleased to announce a new summer school on the appreciation of fine wine, to be held at Exeter College, Oxford between the 11th and 17th of August 2012.
Amongst the highlights of the summer school are a focus session on champagne, our own ‘Judgement of Oxford’ in which you will blind taste some of the finest wines from around the world, and a friendly and informal blind tasting match to round-off the week and put your newly-acquired skills to the test.
You can find out more about the Oxford Course on Wine by visiting our brand new website (just click on the picture above) and/or by writing to us. For now we are keeping a mailing list of people who might be interested in the course, so thank you for letting us know if you would like to have your name added to this list.
Thank you also for forwarding the link to friends and colleagues. We have decided to cap off numbers at 18 to keep the group intimate and ensure that there is plenty of wine to go around, but if there is a lot of interest we may well look into doing a re-run of the course.
