You can host a tasting at home for 150 AED per person, excluding the cost of drinks, or from AED 230 per person at one of our public partner venues. *T&C’s apply.

What’s included in a home wine or beer tasting class?

  • A qualified sommelier will come to your home or chosen venue to teach a 1.5 hour lesson equipped with grape variety specific glassware by Riedel, tasting sheets and learning aids.
  • We’ll explore six wines or beers helping you and your guests to identify and articulate what you smell and taste.
  • You’ll learn about the most important grape varieties and the key wine regions they come from.
  • Get lots of great tips for the next time you’re shopping for wine or choosing a glass at a restaurant, or want to know where to buy wine in Dubai and the UAE.
