Do you love wine? Would you like to learn more about it? Would you like to learn more about wine while spending a weekend away at a five-star hotel? We're going to assume you mentally responded in the affirmative to all of those questions.
We're giving one lucky couple the chance to go to the Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare — one of Ireland’s leading five-star properties — where they'll get the chance to take part in its inaugural Wine Academy.
The hotel's Wine Cellar boasts more than 10,000 bottles, with 800 wine varieties from 18 countries around the world. The atmospheric underground space, which can also be used for private dining, lies in the former kitchen of the original Lodge, guaranteeing the perfect temperature and humidity balance to preserve the hotel’s vast collection.
This year the hotel will host its new Wine Academy Series across three weekends, each focusing on a different theme and a chance for enthusiasts to explore the fascinating world of wines with the Sheen Falls Lodge team of food and beverage experts.
The lucky winner of our competition will attend the inaugural Wine Academy on February 23 & 24, with a course entitled The Perfect Pick: How To Choose The Right Bottle. By attending, you're pretty much guaranteed to become a connoisseur over the course of just one weekend. The prize includes a two-night stay for two people with wine tastings, a wine pairing dinner and breakfast each morning.
Here's a taste of what our winner can look forward to...
A stunning hotel
And, of course, wine galore
