Kick-start your exploration of wine with The Beginner's Guide to Wine hosted by The Whisky Exchange head buyer Dawn Davies MW.
- The Whisky Exchange, 2 Bedford Street, London, WC2E 9HH
The world of wine can be an intimidating one. With more than 10,000 grape varieties and 6,000 regions it’s a minefield out there.
We’re here to lend a helping hand with our very own Wine 101 – a guide to give you the upper hand when it comes to wine.
Led by our very own ‘Yoda’ of wine, Dawn Davies MW, you’ll learn everything from the difference between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to deciphering tannins and acidity.
As one of the world’s 300 Masters of Wine, with experience as a sommelier at top London restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Ledbury and The Square, Dawn has a serious background in choosing great wines. She is now using her knowledge of fine wine and Champagne to build The Whisky Exchange’s range and expertise.
After an evening with Dawn, you'll be able to order in restaurants with confidence and navigate your way around the supermarket wine aisle.
