We had a great evening at the wine tasting. Jonny was very informative but as it's a school rather than a shop there was no hard sell in terms of purchasing wines afterwards. Really good value and the cheese matching was an added bonus. Would really recommend

An informative and great wine tasting experience. I did an 8 week World Wine Tasting and wow i learnt a lot, and tasted a lot of great wines from all over the world. This course is informative but does not overload you with too much information, which is great if you want to get a good basic understanding! A relaxed... More

Bought as a gift for my Dad, which I attended with him. Jonny was very good, excellent knowledge, nice wines, good location. A very enjoyable introduction to wine tasting, lots of interesting information. I will certainly look into another event.

The course was the WSET level 2 over three days. Jonny is an excellent teacher. There is so much information and so many wines to taste and you are guided through it all very thoroughly. I really enjoyed the whole course; which is both friendly and professional at the same time. Our group was split roughly half and half of... More

Enjoying the wine tasting course with Jonathan - he really brings learning to life with a comprehensive history of the regions, varietals and winemaking practices. I have attended numerous wine tasting and wine education courses and this is probably the most enjoyable and instructive one so far... I would recommend it to anyone

This was a sociable and fun way to learn something about wine. The tuition covered many different types of wine from different wine growing countries. It certainly inspired a keen interest as far as I was concerned to take another course from the many on offer. It was carried out in a very informal way and it was good to... More

I studied for 2 WSET exams with Jonny (Levels 2 and 3). It says much about him and his courses that I managed to pass both - with better than expected results. He is hugely knowledgable but makes the courses fun and interesting and speak and explains at 'our' level which is some considerable way below his. Would definitely recommend... More

Hi Silvia Thanks for your positive review. The WSET courses are a great challenge and you've done really well to pass them both with good marks. Take a look at our French Wine Scholar course. I think you'll enjoy it. Jonny More
