A relaxed and informal way to be educated about cheese and wine, both of which were very enjoyable. Phil, the host, was very knowledgeable on the subject, and had a fun presentation style that made for an excellent evening. Would definitely recommend.

Phil runs a really interesting course, that is fun and light hearted but educational, in a great location in Windsor, sampled some excellent wines complimented by a two course meal in the Christopher Wren restaurant. Would thoroughly recommend Phil's courses
