Surry Hills restaurant Nomad has just as much street cred for its wine as it does for its next-level Middle Eastern cuisine. As well as having an extensive wine list and an in-house cellar door, the restaurant also has a monthly wine delivery service. And now its adding another notch to its vinous belt, launching its very own wine school.

Kicking off on Saturday, July 21, the restaurant will run a series of monthly classes, diving deep into all things wine, hosted upstairs at neighbouring China Heights Gallery. Sessions, which will run for 5.5 hours one Saturday a month, will be capped at 20 students and led by Nomad's Director of Wine Simon Howland.

They'll cover everything from wine tasting 101 to an exploration of how climate and geography can impact the final product, with a focus on Australian wines. The classes will also involve some actual wine tasting (naturally) with participants getting to sample around 12 wines throughout each class. And, there'll be food — a seasonal lunch and an afternoon cheese feast will both be provided courtesy of the Nomad kitchen.

Those wanting to take a slightly smaller bite out of Howland's wine knowledge can opt instead for one of the monthly weeknight masterclasses, which'll clock in at a tidy 90 minutes. Each of these relaxed sessions will hone in on a particular theme — think, What is Natural Wine? and Festive Wines — presented via a guided tasting of six wines, with cheese and charcuterie.

Nomad's Saturday Wine School classes cost $250 a session and Weekday Masterclasses are $150 each. To book into a class, email simon@nomadwine.com.au
