superb day out, full day of wine tasting, started with a glass of champagne. Louise the tutor was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot during the day. we had a lovely 2 course lunch in the restaurant, 6 white wines and 6 red wines to try, no scrimping on the size of each glass of wine, thoroughly enjoyable day, friendly people, would definately recommend to anyone who enjoys wine and would like to learn more.

We were bought a voucher as a Christmas present so thought we’d make the most of it and go all out with the option to add some food (It was Blackfriars restaurant so knew it would be nice food too) We were quite surprised on arrival when we were escorted to what was the conference room upstairs. The tables were set out classroom style, and the lights were so bright it really did make you feel you were in a classroom, so not a pleasant environment at all. We did attend during the Pandemic so maybe this had something to do with it but after reading previous reviews I believe the wine tasting events have always took place in the conference room. The French Lady who did the course was very friendly and informative so this review has no bad merit against her. The samples of food from the restaurant were also very good. We felt at £40 per head it was extortionate for what we got, would much rather have spent this on a nice meal in the lovely restaurant downstairs, (we felt quite envious of the customers eating their meals in the cosy restaurant when we left!) Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend Newcastle Wine school to anyone.

Hi Michelle I am sorry that your evening with us didn't live up to your expectation of a restaurant meal. The experience that you purchased was a class based Food and Wine Workshop in which we pair seven different wines with five or six tapas sized portions of food to demonstrate in a practical setting the principles of food and wine pairing. This experience requires a certain level of lighting, for example, to appreciate the appearance of the wines. And under the current Covid restrictions we are required to exercise social distancing between tables in the workshop set up. I am pleased that you enjoyed the food sampled and found your tutor friendly and informative. Kind regards David and the Newcastle Wine School Team

The variety of wines were great, accompanied by the wealth of knowledge shared. Our host answered every question with enthusiasm and detail, in a beginner-friendly manner. There were a mix of levels of 'experience' in the room regarding wine tasting and everyone clearly enjoyed it and were able to participate as well as received insight.

We visited Newcastle Wine School as a large group for part of our work xmas night out, and it kicked our night off brilliantly. It was a fantastic combination of being very informative (but not too detailed), with plenty of time for us to chat in between and enjoy the experience as a group. The wine was delicious, we tasted plenty of different types, and had some snacks with it too. The evening was run as a quiz as we went on, so there was an element of competitiveness between our groups which fun. Plus the environment is gorgeous, above the oldy-worldly Blackfriars restaurant, so very atmospheric.

This was a Christmas present from our daughter. We really enjoyed it. I liked the white wine samples and all of the chocolate samples. My husband enjoyed the red wine. We did learn a lot and the lady who gave the talk was French which added to the evening.
