About Manchester Wine School
A very warm welcome to Manchester Wine School. The school is owned by Simon, a critically acclaimed wine writer. We are local and independent (so do not sell wine) and we run fun and informal Wine Tastings and Wine Courses in Manchester City Centre. We also host 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. We also offer the highly desirable WSET professional qualifications in wine. We now offer online wine tastings as well, perfect for virtual get togethers with friends or work events

I organised a sparkling wine tasting for my friends hen do and they were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. They even found somewhere to host it in the centre of Manchester on one of the busiest weeks of the year. Sarah was amazing in going back and forward helping me to arrange it, even when I made the final decision last minute! And Jack was fantastic on the day. His knowledge of wine is amazing and his completely non-snobbish approach to wine put everyone at ease. He even put up with a couple of rowdy members and was very good humoured!! He made it really interesting and the wines we tasted were all really delicious. Thank you for making the day so nice for my friend.

Simon was really informative, approachable and we all learnt a great deal about the wines we had. I would thoroughly recommend a private wine tasting experience. The six of us had a fantastic time.

Such a lovely, well organised experience! Our tutor was so passionate about his knowledge of wine and that reflected in his teaching. I have yet to get my test results, but regardless of how well I have done, the day was amazing and I will be recommending all my staff to take part!

The course was well presented and good information given although the red wines could have been more varied in the 2nd part. Sadly the venue was noisy due its location in the building and there were a few interruptions from the public walking in, other venues used in the past were more appropriate. Also as it was based in a Chinese restaurant the food options were limited.

Thanks for your comments - we always welcome feedback, even when it's not positive! It's been a challenging time for us over the past year, and even though we've been able to resume face-to-face events, a number of the venues we've used in the past are still to fully reopen. So while we're pleased that we've been able to use the venue you went to, we know it's not ideal. Hopefully we'll have some news soon about a new location, so we look forward to seeing you at another event very soon All the best Simon

Location was central, so really easy to get to. A small, but great bunch of people. Phil, the 'host' was brilliant and willing to answer any questions, and have a laugh. We all enjoyed the afternoon, including lunch, and would consider doing it again.
