The introduction of our Sunday School wine education sessions in 2019 was a wonderful way to offer our customers something new, different and deliciously fun throughout the year. One Sunday per month we ran a session, each with a different topic but all focussed on wine education, delving deeper into a particular subject and matching wines to international cheeses and local pastries. Below are examples of a couple of sessions we ran. Be sure to keep an eye out for the 2020 program!
Sunday School at Prancing Horse Estate The organic and biodynamic winemaking pioneers of the Mornington Peninsula, Prancing Horse Estate, have developed a fantastic new inspiring and ‘enlightening’ Wine Education Series to be held one Sunday per month for the rest of 2019. And it’s called…Sunday School. Because let’s face it, for many of us, wine is pretty close to a religion! Sessions are held at stunning Prancing Horse Estate on Paringa Rd in Red Hill, in a spacious private cottage named ‘The Coterie’ overlooking rolling vineyards across to Westernport Bay. They run for 1.5 hours and are packed with information, wine tastings and local produce nibbles and represent extremely good value for money. While each session has a theme, it is also an opportunity for attendees to ask the experts any burning wine questions they may have.  The Sunday School team include owner and long-time local and international wine connoisseur Tony Hancy, Wine Consultant, Sommelier and owner of The Recreation in Fitzroy Mark Protheroe, Brand Ambassador and WSET Diploma graduate Jane Gordon, and Biodynamic viticulturist Shane Strange.  Bookings are essential as the sessions are intimate and much preparation goes into them. There is availability for the following dates: May 26th - "Wine Ageing; Nature vs Nurture” $75pp June 9th - (Winter Wine Weekend) “Burgundy Inspiration - Introduction to Burgundian Wines” $75pp July 14th - (Bastille Day) “Celebrating the Cote de Nuits” $75 August 4th - “Happy Birthday Horses - The Pony 2018 range release” $50pp September 8th - “Champagne  - Celebrating all Styles” $90pp October 20th - “Biodynamics - in the Vineyard and in the Glass” $50pp November 24th - “Food and Wine Pairing” $65pp   Please email info@prancinghorseestate.com for bookings
