Go back to school this summer and explore wine through the subjects you studied at school. This evening we look at wine and history.

Event details

Unearth some of the most fascinating episodes from wine's 8000-year history.

From the grape's humble beginnings in the foothills of the Caucasus mountains to the world's oldest vines, join Anjali Douglas DipWSET for a globe trotting journey, tasting the wines that have shaped our world.

This is part of our fun and beginner-friendly summer school series, exploring wine alongside a different subject each week. This evening will look at wine and history.

You'll get to taste some premium wines, all with fascinating stories that will bring the subjects to life.

At the end of each session guests can take part in a quiz to test their knowledge. Will you pass with flying colours? (Remember, no prior knowledge is needed!)

About the presenter, Anjali Douglas DipWSET

Anjali Douglas WSET School London educator

Anjali worked in hospitality while studying her A-Levels, never intending to make a career out of it. She then started working in education for museums and galleries, producing events and festivals to attract diverse audiences. She caught the wine bug five years ago and returned to hospitality, starting her new career in a wine bar, before moving on to become responsible for training hospitality staff and sommeliers for a wine distributor. Now, she teaches Levels 1-2 at WSET School London. No matter what industry she is in, Anjali’s aim is to open up conventionally elitist institutions, art forms, and beverages, to more.
