H and I would like to go away for a weekend and do a wine tasting class/course/experience or whatever you want to call it. We're in Cambridgeshire and willing to travel an hour or so by car or train. Can anyone recommend somewhere? I've heard of Vineopolis in London but that's it really.

I've been on the Vineopolis tour and really enjoyed it, ended up going quite late in the day though so felt a bit rushed (and woozy) getting all the tastings done in time. If I did it again I'd go at lunch. Went for dinner at Roast in Covent Garden afterwards which was fabulous.

Am I right in thinking there's a couple of different tours there?

Yes, there are a few different tours. I did the Spirit of Vinopolis when I went, bought it via Buy a Gift when they had an offer on. Just had a look and I couldn't find the same tour but it sounds like this one: www.buyagift.co.uk/.../Vinopolis-Quintessential-Wine-Tasting-Experience-for-Two-BR-10723910.aspx you can try other stuff as well as wine. There's a Chivas Regal room, a vodka cocktail bar, as well as rum and beer tastings too.
You practically fall out of the door after all that!

Thank you, will have a look at the website. I'm a lightweight so god knows how I'd be at the end!
