About Emmanuelle Legrand: She is very motivated to share her passion and knowledge about wines and food with all wines lovers. After working for a long time in the IT industry she decided on a career move into an industry for which she has a real passion. She went back to France to work in a winery in order to understand the wine making processes involved when making different wines. She then returned to Ireland to obtain the diploma in Wines and Spirits (WEST
dip) from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. She also worked in the wine industry here in Cork at a wine Merchant importer as a commercial assistant.

The workshop will run for 8 consecutive weeks. Meeting once a week for 2 hours from 18.30 till
20.30. Some sessions may run a little bit longer depending on how interactive the class will be.
Each evening, you will taste approximately 6 different wines with an Irish retail price ranging from €5 to €40, the average being €12 to €15 per bottle. Wines will be sourced from different
recognised Irish retailers, wine merchants and sometimes directly from the wine producers.
You will receive a set of 6 ISO tasting glasses, which are yours to keep. It will be your responsibility to bring them for all sessions.

So don't wait, contact Emma on 087 –218 7269 or email:
