Find Your Wine Heart

Wine Appreciation Masterclass


Discover the world through the wines of Hans Herzog… 

Starting out on the wine journey can be daunting for the budding wine drinker. Oenophiles always seem to overwhelm beginners with technical terms (like oenophile!), intimidating rules and elaborate rituals.

Part the curtain to the world of wine with the best of the best at Hans Herzog. With our highly trained team and world class wine, it’s easy to take the first steps into a passion that will last a lifetime.

In this two hour small-group session, enjoy an unforgettable time together with our team who will talk you through how to taste wine until your wine senses begin to tingle. Then be transported to a journey from vine to wine as we cover the basics of how wine is made. Savour tastings of our pre-eminent, highly acclaimed wines as we discuss the importance of glassware, serving temperature, opening wine corks and the importance of bottle storage in the cellar.

This experience is flexible in terms of the wine topics discussed. Please email the team for any specific enquiries and topics you have questions on. We strive to be knowledgeable on all facets of wine, but we may need to consult our encyclopaedia (Hans or Therese!) if needed.
