Attended the Saturday Wine tasting in Colchester and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Tim had superb knowledge, was engaging and professional. We tasted 12 wines in total, a good range and ample sample! Lunch was excellent and venue very comfortable, would highly recommend

My best friend from school and i went on Saturday. The day was great fun, very knowledgeable and we had some fantastic wines and champagne. Tim's knowledge and experience of the industry showed immensely answering every question with passion and interest. All 12 wines were tasted and the size of the 'tasting' measure was more than ample./ The food was very good too. Thoroughly recommend. We had a great day and met some nice people.

In a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere you taste good quality wines provided by an experienced, professional wine expert. There are visual aids to help explain various aspects of the programme, but it is not a "schoolroom" scenario. The wines are often unusual, and always worth trying. My wife and I went to a Saturday tasting, and had a great day. The food was very good too, which added to the treat. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes their wines.

I can highly recommend the Essex Wine School. I have so far attended three events - Saturday Wine Tasting with lunch (brilliant Birthday treat for husband), Rosé Wine Tasting and Spanish Wines & Tapas. They have all been great fun, interesting and pitched at just the right level; not too heavy but informative. Neil and Tim both have a great sense of humour and ensure you have a wonderful time. The venues at Chelmsford (with Neil) and Colchester (with Tim) have a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. I am looking forward to the Port and Cheese tasting in December - these events are becoming addictive! Thank you Neil for bringing this to Essex.

Excellent evening of wine, cheese and learning a lot along the way. Good mix of incredibly knowledgable guy and small group, without being too formal. Definitely recommend and would do again
