Provence the venue for a private Nathalie Amey wine course and retreat

La Ferme du Bon Dieu venue for our wine course in Provence, France

Wine Education Course

Made up of five separate, 2 hour modules, this course is ideal for building and expanding your appreciation of wine and oenology. Because this retreat will number no more than 8 people, this ensures you will receive one on one guidance and tuition from Nathalie.

You will taste 27 quality French 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.

Equally important will be the many opportunities to learn more about wine and food matching, a particular area of expertise for Nathalie. There will be many lunches and dinners where Nathalie will co-ordinate with the Chef to produce delicious dishes that compliment the variety of wines that will be served with each meal. The informal, casual atmosphere will enable you to ask questions and learn as Nathalie explains the nuances behind each wine and food selection.

You also will receive comprehensive course notes in a presentation folder that will serve as both a future reference for you and a lovely souvenir of your course with Nathalie Amey.
