Join JCI Leeds
for summer wine tasting at Blackhouse — The Grill on the Square
– where drinks and conversations flow in equal measure!
Following the great success of 2017’s session, this event will focus on bright, fruity flavours as we discover the best wines for British BBQs, garden parties and alfresco business meetings. Our qualified experts are happy to share their recommendations and answer any wine-related questions; your newfound knowledge is sure to impress colleagues, friends and family.
There’ll also be plenty of opportunity to meet young professionals from a range of sectors – including property, accounting and marketing. As the name suggests, our Casually Networking socials are an informal alternative to larger-scale networking events. Plus, wine is a great (and delicious!) ice breaker.
The session will be held in Blackhouse’s beautiful private conservatory. If the weather’s in our favour, we’ll take advantage of the retractable roof. After all, sunshine perfectly complements wining and networking!
🍷About the Trainers🍷
«I'm always looking for new things to do. As I'd studied Chemistry for my A Levels and have a passion for wine, I was interested in learning more about wine tasting. What started as a fun pastime lead to me sitting exams and passing the WSET Level Three Award; this means I'm qualified to become a sommelier in an established restaurant! Instead, I'm continuing my education with the Yorkshire Wine School and developing my knowledge of all things wine-related.»
«I took my first WSET course in 2001. After working in Taipei in 2014 — alongside colleagues who loved wine and had passed their WSET exams — I decided to develop my knowledge upon my return to Leeds. I passed my WSET Level 3 with a Merit and continue my wine studies with Yorkshire Wine School and online.»
