Enjoy ely’s award-wining wine experience

Join us at one of our wine appreciation classes

ely wine bar sommelier - Ian Brosnan
Award-winning sommelier, Ian Brosnan, teaches ely’s award-winning 4 week wine appreciation course. Great for those who love wine, or would love to just learn more.These wine courses are a relaxed, fun and sociable way to expand your knowledge of the world of wines. At ely, we believe that wine is all about enjoyment, and that a better understanding of where a wine is from and how it's made, leads to a more enjoyable drinking experience.With ely’s wine appreciation course, we examine how wine is made, where it comes from, why you like it and sometimes, why you don’t. ely provides a fun, social approach to wine tasting. ely’s wine experience already holds numerous accolades such as “Best Wine Bars in Ireland” 2015 & 2014, “Best Wine Experience” 2014 and most recently was just awarded Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” 2015 ‘for having one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world’ Our wine appreciation courses will take place in the beautiful private Georgian dining room at ely wine bar, 22 Ely Place and each class will be accompanied by supper. All notes are provided on the evening, as well as tasting sheets and a loose leaf binder for you to continue to keep a journal of your wine experiences.
