The Whole Hog

After months of teaching wine classes in different locations all over London, it finally occurred to me there is no place I'd rather teach people about wine than in my own Clerkenwell rooftop loft. My teaching style has always focused on exploring wine in a fun and down to earth way, and hey -- nothing breaks down social barriers like getting drunk with strangers! Guests at my wine classes can expect 2 hours of fun and interactive wine education in a laid back and friendly environment. And of course, as the name suggests, at some point I'll most likely saber a bottle of bubbly on the roofdeck!
