Tastings, good country dinners, evenings indulging in conversation and port.

For those who want to know more about wine in a comfortable and relaxing way.
A love affair with wine has blest Jon with a nose and palate more subtle than a leg-spinners wrist. He has the wit to transmit his enthusiasm without wine snobbery, a rare accomplishment.
Wine tastings on an intimate scale interspersed with good country dinners and sightseeing in the beautiful Wye Valley.

Lap up a little wine, learning about it as you pour it down. Jon Hurley, writer and lecturer on wine, calls it a Wineweekend.
Good food and drink are amiable companions in the dead days of winter. Informal Wineweekends are held throughout the year.
If sight of a wine list sends you under the table in shame at your ignorance, try one of Jon Hurley's wineweekends, spent not in a chilly damp cellar, but in an old house with home grown foods and fine wines.
... and a few comments from satisfied Wineweekenders.
DH, North Humberside
Brilliant! That's the only word I can think of to describe last weekend.
I thought I would just write to say how much we enjoyed the wine weekend. The atmosphere was very much of a house party and I think all of the guests were very sociable which made it pass all too quickly.
G and J, East Yorkshire
The wine, walking and company were all superb and exceeded our expectations.
We enjoyed ourselves enormously, also very much appreciated your guidance in taking us further into the wonderful world of wine. There is little doubt that we will wish to repeat the experience and introduce our friends.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, not to mention the wine! What a place (Kentchurch Court)! A great experience.

Just a quick note to thank you for a fantastic "Wineweekend". Everybody very much enjoyed your words about the wines (and other things!) and the wines themselves and the weekend was made even better by the great weather and scenery. Returning to London was somewhat depressing....
The range of wines was chosen to perfection. Years of experience were obvious and we were all very relieved to see the regular drinking has no adverse effects on one's health! The meal was excellent, and even the choice of cheese had obviously been carefully thought out.
