This is my second return to this establishment and really enjoyed the knowledge and passion that was brought to the table on learning the pros and cons of champagne/sparkling wine. Very informative as we travelled around the world with our glasses allowing our taste buds to discern the difference between vintage, regions and processes coupled with French cheeses and other...

A fun way to sample and enjoy a wide variety of bubbles. Very informative presentation by Charles Hargrave. Matching cheeses and canapés were superb 😀🍾. Highly recommended for all ages over 18.

Hi Rob, I recently attended your one day wine appreciation course at the Sydney wine centre. I also brought along a group of my friends as a gift to them (you may remember us, from the 27th August!). I attended a course in London a number of years ago and wanted my friends to have the same experience I had had.... More

Got this as a birthday present and went with another wine appreciator friend. Really fun and warm atmosphere. Very relaxed. A tour through the wines of Italy - which - admittedly I think Australians do better -- but the vibe of the evening was great. The facilitator was knowledgeable and friendly and actively asked everyone's opinions and feedback on the... More

I've not experienced a more informative wine tasting...both on wine and history! Looking forward to next time! Rob's ability to answer any question was incredible.

My uni student sister saved up her money to purchase me a one day wine appreciation course for my birthday. I was so excited to go but was deeply disappointed! The material was not engaging. The day consisted of sitting around a table while the course facilitator gave his opinion, in long stream-of-conscious fashion. There was no opportunity to talk... More

Riedel Glassware Masterclass was definitely an eyeopener and very educational. The very point of this educational workshop was to demonstrate the difference the shape, depth and quality of the wine glass can make to the taste of the wine. We had absolutely no idea that great wine can turn into 'not-so' great wine and it had us starting to question... More

I went to an ‘Introduction to Australian Wine’ night at The Sydney Wine Centre. I thoroughly enjoyed it - good wine, amazing food and a nice mix of fun and education. I’d highly recommend it for couples, friends, groups, anyone really whatever your level of wine knowledge. I was on holiday in Sydney at the time so being located just... More

My husband and I attended the French cheese and wine matching night at the Sydney Wine Centre. Tim and his dad were very friendly and educational, and we leant lots of interesting facts about wine in general as well as French regional wine and cheese. Highly recommended for beginners through to wine lovers!
