ONLINE COURSE: Jimmy's Biodynamic Beauties
Understanding Biodynamic Wines with Jimmy Smith
This fasinating tasting series will provide thorough insight into biodynamics. Jimmy will go through the history of this movement as well as the different preparations that define this winemaking philosophy. He will also cover 6 examples of wine producers championing biodynamics.
COURSE DATES (Each of the 2 sessions begins at 8:30pm and will last approximately 1 hour):
- Friday 29th May 2020
- Friday 5th June 2020
COURSE STRUCTURE AND FORMAT:
Over the course of two weeks, Jimmy Smith will discuss 'what is biodynamics’ and go through the main components of it. He will host each tasting session live at 8:30pm over 2 consecutive Fridays. Each session will be approximately one hour in length. Unable to commit to each evening? No problem! Anyone registered for this course will gain access to the video recordings of each tasting session, so you can always revisit any of these at anytime in the future - whether its because you missed participating in the live evening or if you want to revisit the presentation at a later date.
Each evening, Jimmy will also be tasting three wines that are representative of the styles discussed during that evening's session. A case of each wine covered throughout the course (6 bottles) will be available to order for anyone registered to attend the course, so if you'd like, you can also purchase and enjoy the wines with Jimmy (or at a later date). The normal retail value of this 6 bottle case is £145, however we have been able to get a special offer for our students of only £125. Any wine orders received after 12pm will be processed on the next working day. We are working hard to deliver your order within two working days of the order being processed however due to the current environment the wines may arrive a day or two later than expected.
PLEASE NOTE: As this is a virtual tasting, only one seat needs to be booked per household UNLESS individuals will be logging into the tasting series with different computers/tablets.
OPTIONAL TASTING CASE PRICE: £125 (Comprised of 6 full bottles)
You will receive a link to purchase the wine after you have registered for the session. If you have registered at the weekend it will be sent to you on the Monday. If you have registered after 4pm Monday to Friday it will be sent to you the next working day.
