Posh vs Plonk - Taste the difference (Chester)

Posh vs Plonk - Taste the difference (Chester)

 Here at the Wine School one of the most commonly asked questions we get asked is - "Can you really taste the difference between cheap wine & expensive wine?"

It's a perfectly reasonable question as many struggle to understand just how and why certain wines cost so much money. Our main aim as wine educators is to find you the best examples of each wine but this tasting is a great way to see for yourself! 

Can you taste the difference between two wines of a similar style but one is posh and one is plonk? When we say plonk we don't mean poor quality, we mean your everyday 'quaffing' wines vs a posh wine which is £15+.

The tasting will be blind so we won't tell you which is the more expensive of the selection we choose and it will give you the ability to write down your thoughts with your own score card.

We'll go through how to taste wine like a professional and what to look for but if you're interested in a really fun, informal yet informative wine tasting to get you thinking then this is perfect for you.

Course outline:

  • We'll sample 12 wines on the night (6 posh, 6 plonk)
  • 2 hour fun informal presentation
  • Fun quiz
  • Nibbles on the night such as cheeses & cold meats
  • tasting notes about each wine sampled (cost, retailer etc)
  • Professional tasting glasses & mats 


This tasting is ideal for beginners looking to learn more about wine in a fun, relaxed environment and can also be purchased as a Gift Voucher, ideal for Christmas.
