I found the wine tasting highly educational as someone who is fairly new to the wine world. I appreciated the aesthetics of the tasting Mat. I also liked the use of wines which were similar but not the same to compare the differing characteristics of the two.
The Introduction to Wine Tasting Course, with Serena was a lovely and relaxing entry into the world of wine tasting. Serena’s encouraging and supportive nature, along with creative tasting maps made for a fabulous experience. With Serena’s encouragement and teachings, I now feel much more confident with the idea of undertaking a wine tasting at one of our incredible Adelaide Hills Wine venues.
We were on a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide, staying the night in Hahndorf. We had visited Dan Murphy's in Frankston to stock up for our trip and on their recommendation had been enjoying some wines from Sidewood. So the Sidewood Estate Cellar Door was the obvious choice for our afternoon wine tasting. It turned out to be a great choice and the lovely Serena took us through the wine list at a leisurely pace. Sidewood may be relatively young in wine terms, but they are doing great things. Not only are the wines outstanding, they also represent great value. We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
