BON VIVEUR COURSES

Our Bon Viveur Experience

Our wide range of Bon Viveur experiences really are a must for lovers of wine, food and the good things in life. Come along to Carlton Towers and immerse yourself in a unique environment, spend time in our newly planted vineyard ‘Clos D Beaumont’ and learn about growing vines in the northern climate. Taste the very best in English wine production and have lunch in the vineyard, weather permitting of course, this is North Yorkshire after all!

Enjoy an experience with our wine expert, Laura Young, who’s passion for wine began during her time working for Carlsberg UK, one of the country’s largest suppliers of wine to the on trade, and she now has extensive industry knowledge. Laura is an accredited Wines and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) educator and she now runs her own business, Inside the Bottle, which is an Approved Programme Provider for WSET. Laura’s love of her subject comes across in her friendly, no-nonsense approach to wine training and events. During the Spring of 2017 Laura added practical experience to her CV when she worked a harvest at the Saint Clair winery in Marlborough, New Zealand. Whether she is delivering formal academic training or a wine event that is just for fun, Laura’s enthusiasm and love for her subject is always engaging and accessible to all.

All the wine experiences can be tailored to suit your groups preference, do give us a call and we would be delighted to discuss your preferences.
