Wine + Lifestyle

welcome to toro tries wine

Toro tries wine was born as a panacea to the intimidating and complex world wine would have you think it occupies.

Hello! I’m Daphne.

Oenology (the study of wines) is the perfect mix of science and art, geography and gardening, history and present day, but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Wine is a way to bring people together, socialise and compliment meals. It signals that we’ve reached the point of the week where we can regroup and relax.

I needed exam technique, practise questions and tips from people who had been there. Let’s learn more and explore together.

Want to contact me? I’d love to hear from you…
