There's currently two main ways to learn about wine. The professional course, which costs hundreds of pounds and takes dozens of hours, or watching videos, attending tastings and reading books. The former is costly, the latter is passive learning.The Wine List will bridge that.
Get two bottles of wine and a wine education delivered to you every month as part of your flexible subscription. You will be taught how to taste wine, gradually building on your knowledge each month in a structured way.
The Wine List costs £33 plus £6 postage & packaging.
We carefully select distinct wines to ensure you're getting something interesting and a little rare. Supermarkets offer their customers well under 1% of all the wine available in the world. In the remaining 99%, there's great wine in every category, and our mission is to find it for you.
As a Wine List subscriber, you'll learn how to identify the characteristics of wine you like, and then apply that to choosing wine in the future.
We will teach you how regional climates, choice of grapes, soil types, and winemakers' stylistic choice all impact the flavour of a wine. You'll learn why two chardonnays can taste so different from each other even if they're from the same country. You'll also learn the vocabulary in a non-pretentious way so you can understand what someone means when they describe a wine as 'steely and mineral.'
That means, you will be able to choose better wine in shops and restaurants. But not only that, you'll be able to talk about it in a clear way. You can use The Wine List as part of a tasting club with your friends, loved ones and family members (and even the in-laws so you can finally show off your wine knowledge).
