WELCOME TO ROBERSON WINE SCHOOL
Welcome to the online home of the Roberson Wine School. We think wine is a fascinating topic with something to offer everyone, and we set out to guide people through its intricacies without pretension or talking down. Here you can learn more about the What, Where, Who, When and How of wine by working through our free online essays. These are all written by us to give you a flavour of what our Introduction to Wine course, held right here in our Kensington cellars, offers. We hope you enjoy them and check back soon for more.
What is wine and what goes into it? Get an introduction to the topic and a run-down of the major grape varieties.
How does where a wine comes from affect its taste and quality? We offer some answers and illustrate them with the ultimate example of terroir – Burgundy.
How does the winemaker influence the wine? We look at some of the decisions to be made in the winery and discuss the significance of the producer name in Bordeaux.
How does the vintage affect a wine and when should you drink it? We analyse the impact of the weather and how wine develops with time.
How do you store, serve, match with food and avoid a hangover with wine? These and many more topics are covered in this ramble through the ‘How’ of wine.
