An Introduction to Wine Appreciation – Adult Leisure Course

Wine Appreciation

This short, interactive course is the perfect introduction to wines for consumers, enthusiasts and anyone in the industry who wants to increase their knowledge and perhaps gain a qualification.  The course explores principal grape varieties and their characteristics, different styles of wine and methods of production.  You will also learn how to taste and describe the flavour of a wine and match it with food, and you will find out how to store and serve wines.  The course follows the syllabus of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust Level 1 Award and you may take the award if you wish, for which an assessment fee will be charged.  The course fee includes all wines, food and a workbook.

Jersey Muratti Team

A team of top chefs from Jersey and Guernsey competed in the ultimate inter-island culinary challenge this week and Jersey were triumphant!


The two teams were tasked with creating a culinary feast from a mystery basket for 55 covers per team.  They had to impress a discerning group of diners, including a judging panel of top London chefs; Henri Brosi, executive chef at The Dorchester, Paul Gayler MBE, executive chef at The Lanesborough Hotel and Andrew Bennett MBE, food and beverages manager at The Sheraton in Park Lane.


Thanks to Freedom Media for producing the following videos.




The Jersey Team headed up by Guy Owen from Tiffin Jersey included some of the best professional chefs as well as one of our very own Level 2 students George Goddard.

Jersey claimed victory for the second year in a row.
