We’ve written about Karen Hardwick’s monthly wine dinners before, and make no apologies for flagging up her latest series of courses and dinners for January and February because Karen is one of the most passionate and least pompous wine educators we know and the dinners held in Leeds, Stokesley and York promise to be informative and good fun.
Their first event for 2013 is on 18th January at Harvey Nichols, Leeds when Laura Young will host an evening masterclass of Champagne and sparkling wines. The price (to include six wines) is £25 per person. To book phone 0113 204 8000 or [email protected].
Melton’s Too, York are holding a two course supper with wine on 31st January with Linda Field, who runs a wine school and wine holidays at the Auberge du Vin in the Rhone Valley. Price £35 per person. To book call Melton’s Too on 01904 629222
A similar evening with Linda Field will be held on 1st February at Chapters Hotel, Stokesley. The price for an aperitif, dinner and wines is £50.95 per person.
For the serious wine-lover and those in the trade, Karen’s Wine Academy will be running Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) examination courses (Levels 1-3) during January and February in Harrogate, Leeds, Stokesley and York.
