Wine Master Classes & Events


Gourmet Food Lovers Weekend at Avincis Winery: Avincis winery is an oasis set in the famous wine region of “Dragasani” (neighbouring vineyards include Prince Stirbey, Crama Bauer & Via Sandu) and this weekend is a real romance with food and wine.  Rachel will be cooking up a storm and the vineyard owners  will be hosting.  Accommodation is luxurious and the place is just lovely for a “get away from it all” feel.  At 3-3.5 hours drive it’s less than some other destinations and a little more “doable” for a weekend. Accommodation is available as single and double options.

What: Themed wine tastings classes are a great way to learn and acquire new skills. Our highly qualified team delivers in a relaxed and entertaining way.  Generally we taste 6-8 wines in a themed wine tasting.  There is a huge range of themes to choose from and we list our most requested ones.  We also tailor tastings of private cellar collections and fine wines which when you want something extraordinary are just the thing – just let us know what you have in mind! You will receive a set of tutorial notes as well to take home and further your wine adventure.

Great for: Themed tastings are a great add-on to a dinner or cooking workshop.  They are great for corporate team buildings, Christmas parties, birthday parties and for clubs and societies.

Where: Themed tastings work well at your location, here at the no smoking Atelier or off site at a vineyard (we work with many of Romania’s finest vineyards), in an art gallery, favourite hotel or sports club. Tastings work best in locations free of strong odours such as smoke and air fresheners.
