what's inside?

Don’t know your Pinot Noir from your Pinotage?

It’s really hard to choose a wine sometimes. So much so it feels you need a degree in grapes to find the right one. Don't worry, we can help! The Tasting Class is now your personal wine concierge, sampling hundreds of wines and grouping them for occasions, or just the right wine for dinner. Inside you'll find:

  • SELECTED BY EXPERTS - 6 x 750ml sommelier-selected bottles - a mix of reds, whites, bubbles depending on the theme, chosen by the wine experts at The Tasting Class

  • TASTING NOTES YOU'LL LOVE - we'll help you understand what we're drinking, why we chose it, and how to find more wine like it. They're notes you'll actually read and maybe even keep

  • UNIQUE WINES - You'll find wine not available in any retail stores in Dubai

  • SAVINGS! The cost of all the wines in the box will be less than if all are purchased individually
