Upper Sixth Wine Society in full flow

Upper Sixth Wine Society in full flow

Miss Jamie Gallagher

Woldingham’s Wine Society course for Upper Sixth students, which Miss Chan and I are running, looks at how wine is made, the reasons for different aromas and tastes and what to look for when selecting a wine.

Last week, we focused on white wine, trying four very different wines. We began with a Pinot Grigio, followed by Sauvignon Blanc and a rather expensive Chardonnay before ending with most of the Sixth Formers’ favourite, a very sweet Moscato.

In the remaining sessions we will taste a selection of red, rosé and sparkling wines, with our final “Christmas special” focusing on Champagne and Prosecco, accompanied by a chocolate fountain and strawberries.

The aim of this five-week course is to provide students with skills, knowledge and enjoyment. We have space for a few more Upper Sixth students to join us. Please get in touch for a parent consent form.
