supper, and one on Saturday 5.00pm - 7.00pm, followed by a gourmet 5 course dinner at 7.30pm. An excellent way to spend some
time learning about wine, while enjoying a Lake District week-end!

Very topical at present, are private celebration wine tastings in Cumbria, particularly in Lake District
holiday cottages. Mostly, these are part of Hen Party residential weekends, but some are family and friends get-togethers,
birthday party celebration weekends, or anniversary or retirement celebrations. It goes without saying wine and celebrations
go together and the Lake District is an unrivalled destination for an enjoyable break in fabulous surroundings. It's the
perfect formula for a memorable event. (There seem to be no shortage of holiday properties catering for
up to 20 people and more!)
I've been tutoring wine tastings,
running wine courses, private and corporate wine tastings and events, and vineyard holidays since 1993. I'm the Honorary
