Wine Tasting Manchester - Welcome to Manchester Wine School

A very warm welcome to Manchester Wine School, We are different because we do not sell wine!

The school is owned by Simon, a critically acclaimed wine writer.  Find out more on the about us page.

We are local and independent (so do not sell wine) and we run fun and informal Manchester Wine Tastings and Manchester Wine Courses, plus corporate events and private wine tastings across Greater Manchester and North Cheshire for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it; no previous wine tasting experience is necessary. 

We focus on enjoying wine and learning about it in a relaxed and friendly setting.  If you know what you like and want to find out why - or if you want to broaden your wine enjoyment and knowledge - we can help!
