It’s almost that time of year when gentlemen are challenged with the prospect of what on earth to buy for the lady they love – especially as expectations can be high! We hope you can gain a little inspiration from our Valentine’s Day gift guide.
Perfect Gift For Wine Lovers
A Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) wine course is the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life – and also a great way for couples to explore the world of wine together. You might not know but It’s actually possible to take WSET’s globally recognised Level 1 and Level 2 Award in Wines courses online from start to finish including an online exam, as well as at wine schools across London and the rest of the UK. It’s a great way of igniting a passion for wine, learning how to navigate wine lists and impressing friends and family with your wine knowledge! A wonderful gift we recommend.
