'Fun & engaging! I really found my passion for wine after this class' Hannah
'The best wine education session I have done' Tim
'What a wonderful way to learn more about wine appreciation instead of just drinking it and never giving it another thought.
Loved the plate with all the items you could sniff to identify the flavour you were trying to identify in the wine.
The atmosphere was great and the presentation fantastic.
The meal afterwards soaked up all the wine and was top notch.' Eric

This masterclass focuses on wine’s age-ability.
Enjoy a seated tasting of Upper Reach's complex aged museum wines against a significantly younger vintage.
You'll want to show off your new wine knowledge.
The Upper Reach private museum cellar is rarely opened to anyone, and in the spirit of the occasion, Lauren will select a wild card, a really old museum vintage bottle that you will taste, dissect and analyse together.
The Masterclass is held upstairs overlooking the tanks in the winery surrounded by barrels, with flights of both red and white wine varieties.
Wine Appreciation Masterclass $95pp
Lunch & Masterclass $155pp
After your class, relax and enjoy a 2 course lunch with sweeping views of the vineyard.
