Shop tastings

On certain evenings through the year, Kernowine hosts various wine, beer, cider and spirits tastings in our Falmouth shop. Whether you’re a Rioja or Sauvignon Blanc fan, or just want an alternative to the same old, same old – why not book on to one of our classes.

The classes don’t cost too much and you’ll have a laugh informally learning about the wines of the world – and we do some food matching as well, like our sweet wine and dessert class – plus cheese matched with wine, port, Madeira and sherry nearer Christmas.

Rescheduled Rosé and summer wine class – Tuesday 14th June

On Tuesday 14th June between 17:30-18:30 we’ll taste six wines perfect for the summer – including a Provence rosé, a Zinfandel blush, a Spanish rosé in a can, an Australian sparkling Moscato and a dark red rosé from Tavel in southern France plus a chilled red wine.

Full payment will need to be paid while booking to secure a place and payment will not be possible on the day of the class to avoid last-minute cancellations. Just a word of warning – this will be our final shop class until the autumn.

Some of the other classes we will be running include alternative whites and reds, Cornish wines, a tour of Cornwall beers and cider styles from across the UK.

If you’re in the hospitality business, or want to formally know more about wine, we will also be running some Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) courses in late 2022 from level one (beginner), to level three (better than beginner). These consist of several weeks of formal classes followed by a written and tasting exam at level three. We will also be holding Wine Scholar Guild classes for France, Spain and Italy.

When we’re not so busy in the shop (mainly through the winter months) we will also be offering tastings at home – whether you live in Cornwall or are just visiting our lovely county for a week or two. We’ll bring the wine and some tasting glasses – you just relax and try some of our favourite wines, beers, ciders and spirits. More details to follow and get in touch for corporate tastings.
