One Hour Wine does wine tasting a little differently.

It’s really great value considering the amount (and quality) of wine you get to quaff, plus the fun facts that will easily impress your pals.


A very professional presentation... It was extremely entertaining, educational, graphic... all punctuated by a variety of very well selected wines.


He can teach anyone how to read a wine list like a local, in just one hour!

All along I thought about how effortlessly you applied your long earned skills in explaining the Portuguese wine traditions and specifics. Aside from a stellar line up in the bottles that you brought, I think we had a pretty dynamic conversation and I for sure learned a lot!

Thank you for your in-depth knowledge of Portuguese wines and your easy-to-follow tips! We still can't believe how much we learned in just an hour! It was a fun, engaging session and we love the 'cheat sheet' you gave us. We put our new-found knowledge to the test at a few local Lisbon restaurants and well, we were not disappointed! In fact our waiter at one fabulous restaurant was well impressed with our knowledge of Portuguese wine. One Hour Wine - you exceeded expectations, thank you. Everyone visiting Lisbon should see you first.

The One Hour Wine course was tremendous fun and very informative. A knowledgeable and engaging guide, Miles chose an excellent selection of whites, reds and ports to provide the perfect introduction - at astonishingly good value - to the underrated delights of Portuguese wine.
