Anna Spooner is the Tastings and Events Co-Ordinator at The Wine Society. She joined the team in 2018 after working at The West London Wine School as a wine tutor and loves to bring her passion for wine education to our members. She completed her WSET Diploma in 2021.

Our online tutored events are one of the most popular styles at The Wine Society. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge from our tasting team, our buyers, and sometimes our producers, we love giving our members the opportunity to learn with us and broaden their understanding of the vast world of wine.

Themes vary from big picture topics to detailed deep dives and if you’re not sure if the event will be pitched at your level of experience, then simply get in touch at

Often called the ‘King of Grapes’, cabernet sauvignon might just be the most recognisable and best-loved wine grape in the world – and it is certainly the most planted. Its ability to produce high-quality wines in far-flung corners of the globe has made it an international powerhouse.

In this session, Anna will explore the origins of the variety, its unique character and the styles of wines that it can produce. We’ll visit Bordeaux where it is blended to produce some of the world’s priciest and most ageworthy wines before exploring the styles of California, Australia and even Lebanon.

The three wines that Anna will be using in the session will be released on 26th August. You’re welcome to buy one, two or all three; or simply join with a cup of tea!
