Choosing wine in a restaurant can be an exciting part of the experience, or can be completely terrifying. Here at WSET we truly believe that choosing and enjoying wine in a restaurant should be fun. In this session we’ll be concentrating on some simple steps to build confidence and make it easier to select the best wine for you when you go out for dinner. We’ll discuss budget, food and wine pairing, wine etiquette, wine lists, and choosing wine for a celebration, alongside providing an insight to the role of a sommelier and how to make the most of their expertise.
This webinar is free to attend and open to anyone, no prior wine knowledge is needed. The new series of bitesize 30-minute webinars are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about wine.
