The school is owned by Simon Woods, a critically acclaimed wine writer.  Simon and the team love to talk about wine in an interesting and informal way. Find our more and meet the team on our about us page.

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