From Champagne Boizel in France to Agustí Torelló Mata in Spain, and Weingut Jurtschitsch in Austria to Gusbourne in the United Kingdom, there's a global wine adventure waiting for you.
Each limited-capacity masterclass, tailored for a maximum of 20 participants, provides an intimate learning environment with guided tastings, making it a valuable experience for wine enthusiasts who seek a more immersive and educational tasting experience.
