Cascais Wine Education Course

Would you like to improve your understanding of wine, what wines to choose and when? Increase your skills at wine and food pairing? Come and join Nathalie in Cascais at the luxurious Fortaleza do Guincho hotel for a wine education course in relaxed and beautiful surroundings. Perched above the Atlantic, this 5 star hotel is the perfect venue for our course over five days.

Not only will you undertake Nathalie's full wine education course, you will dine each day for lunch in the hotel's Michelin star restaurant. As well as enjoying superb cuisine, it will also be an opportunity to learn more about food and wine pairing with each lunch.

Wine Course Overview

Made up of five separate, 2 hour modules, this course is ideal for building and expanding your appreciation of wine and oenology. The courses are held with small groups of no more than 8 people which ensures you will receive one on one guidance and tuition from Nathalie.

You will taste 27 quality French and Portuguese wines and learn about the subtleties of the various wines varieties and techniques that come from such a broad selection. These wines have been personally selected by Nathalie to not only compliment the course format but also to provide you with an experience of tasting some exceptional wines sourced by Nathalie in her extensive travels through France and Portugal.
