Wine Training

Jane Clare - One Foot in the Grapes

Working with two local renowned wine experts, Jane Clare from One Foot in the Grapes and Laura Griffiths of Lingo Vino we are holding a range of wine events .

Both Jane and Laura will be hosting food and wine pairing evenings at Lu Ban on Thursday evenings where they will be educating guests on the merits of food and wine and how flavours can be enhanced with wines and a range of foods.

Jane will be offering a Saturday morning introductory wine training session for 3 weeks, where those who have a keen interest in wine can have their learning recognised with a nationally recognised certificate.

Laura created Lingo Vino to be a home for people looking to develop exciting life skills. Wine, like language, brings people together, opens new doors and creates lasting experiences. Whether you’re looking to deepen your understanding of wine or learn a new language, Laura is here to guide your journey.

Laura graduated University with a degree in Modern European Languages and then moved abroad for 12 years in France & Spain working as a CELTA qualified senior teacher.

It was whilst living abroad where Laura discovered her other life passion, wine. Laura passed the WSET Level 2 & 3 exam, and it was through this period where Laura discovered how well languages and wine synergise together.

If you’re interested in learning more about languages, discovering how to taste wine, or would love a bespoke wine tasting package; visit the website at or email Laura at
