"We have done several courses with Colin at the Lancashire Wine School; the World of Wine course, the Spain course, and are just completing France vs the Rest of the World. They have all been extremely enjoyable and very informative! You're basically getting together with a great group of like-minded people to taste wines and learn about how and why they taste the way they do. The greatest thing we've learned is that you can't be wrong! Fabulous fun and great value for money!" - Dr. Duncan Sayer (UCLAN) 2011
