Wine Course in Dublin September 2011

Our Spring Wine Appreciation Course has now finished and there’s a troop of ely tasters who have newly acquired tasting skills that they want to put into practice.  What they truly enjoyed was moving away from their default wine like Rioja or Sauvignon Blanc and having the confidence to  explore the many varieties and styles available are on the market.

Throughout the course we tasted over 40 different wines ranging in price from €15-€45 RRP from all corners of the globe. We serve supper as part of the course, and always explore how the individual wines match the dishes each week to build up some first hand experience of food and wine matching.

We are taking a break for the summer and will start again in September. Please visit our website for more information and to book your place or you can email us on wineclub@elywinebar.com.

Customer reviews of the ely winebar appreciation course

I wanted to say thanks for a fantastic wine course.
The pace, content and atmosphere were all excellent.  You presented great information in a relaxed accessible way – a real pleasure.  I miss it on a Tuesday now! As my wife is from France, we typically stick to French wine bringing lots of French wine home from France.  So it was great to learn about good wines from elsewhere.

I have been looking for some time to join a wine tasting course, something enjoyable and not exam focussed for an after-work evening…… From the outset, our host, Michelle Lawlor of Ely made a special effort to welcome the group and encourage suggestions and feedback on the various wines tasted over each night. At a minimum, we sampled 6 wines from various regions and different grape varieties per night. Michelle ensured to introduce us to wines which were not only good value but were something different and out of the ordinary selection that one might be inclined to choose or pick up in the local supermarket.
Ely’s wine tasting programme was exceptional, delivered on variety and extremely good value. Supper was provided and we were all very well catered for, including those of us who were vegetarian. We were introduced to many different wines and regions and I have come along way from my narrow selection of a Chablis, Sancerre or Rioja. Very enjoyable course and congrats to our host Michelle who really made a huge effort to welcome us and educate us on the various wines together with some great stories along the way. A great social event with a good mix of characters, we geled well together and can’t wait to sign up for the next course. Thoroughly recommend!!
