It’ll be wine from go to whoa... learn about sparkling wine styles; why Riesling is the white variety wine snobs go gaga over; why real men drink rosé; why the Coonawarra region makes phenomenal Cabernet Sauvignon; and what sets Aussie Shiraz apart on the world stage. There will be tastings of all the above and more!

Wine and Cheese $85 per person


Special guest star, Penny from Penny’s Cheese Shop, will be joining in this class for two hours of spectacular wine and cheese tasting.

They’ll take the wank out of wine and cheese matching and have some fun as you learn about cow’s cheese, sheep’s cheese and goat’s too. Pairing with white wine and red. What to eat before dinner, and what to have for afters.

Wine & Chocolate $85 per person

They say it can’t be done. Chocolate and wine that is. But we all do it. All the time.

Join Richie from Brown Paper Wine and in this two hour class you will learn to do it better. Dancing through the wine world from moscato to fortifieds, with your standard issue Shiraz and Pinot in between. Some simple lessons in sweetness, acidity, structure and finesse. White, milk and dark chocolate, it’s a broad church, and all are welcome to come and indulge.

About your teacher, Richie


Over the past 19 years there aren't many parts of the wine industry I haven't got my dirty mitts into. From sales and marketing, supply chain and logistics, I've even made a bit of hooch. But the best way to explain what I'm about is to read one of my wine labels... "what's important to me? Family, friends, drinks with mates, loud dinners, long lunches. Great food and better company, laughter and rollicking conversation. Time spent with the people who mean the world to me." That's what I'm about. That's what wine is about.
