Wanted to learn more about wine but never known how or had the time to make the journey? Wanted to do it in a friendly and understanding environment amongst friends and other like-minded people? We now have the place for you.

GRAND CRU WINE ACADEMY

From our humble team we present to you our newest addition to Beckenham highstreet: a wine school. We've wanted to be able to offer education on this most difficult subject for a long time but have never had the resources. Finally, we have pulled together a full syllabus with a test at the end to help you get a bit more out of every glass.

Tutored by our very own Simon Cassina Dip WSET and hosted at our high street shop, you can now learn everything you've ever wanted to know (and more than you would have imagined).

If this sounds like a bit of you, then you're welcome to join us for a FREE GLASS OF WINE and a little presentation about our school on Thursday 6th of February from 7PM. The lounge will also be open so you're welcome to hang about after, too.

If you're not able to join us at the launch for any reason then just read on to find out much, much more.
