“Best Wine School in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is definitely the best place to learn about wine in London - indeed the UK! The venue is slightly different - you come through a Big Yellow storage facility - but the delightful wine rooms await you below. In the lovely glass tasting room, next to the wine storage cellar with some of the finest wines maturing in London, the great knowledge and enthusiasm of Jimmy and the rest of his team awaits - of course with some brilliant wines to try! West London Wine School offers everything for the beginner to the advanced and all levels in between, with introduction to wine day courses or 8 week courses to great fine wine tastings as well as offering WSET Level 2 and 3 at a great price! You'll love it!

“Chelsea's best cellar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

What a delight to discover the West London Wine School! Entry is through the Big Yellow Storage company, who have built a spacious modern wine tasting room next to their unique wine self storage managed by Matt. Jimmy runs the show in the school, providing a variety of tastings each week, from in depth looks at different wine regions to formal wine qualifications.
Each tasting attracts a mixed group of people from wine trade specialists to enthusiastic locals but everyone seems to have a good time - Ill be going back! How much fun to be learning something about the glass of wine in your hand while meeting new people. I'm cancelling the book club and coming here in future!

“Great choice for wine novices and enthusiasts alike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

This was the first formal wine-tasting I've ever been on, and I was really impressed. We went for a one-off two hour course tasting wines from north-east and eastern Spain, which cost £27.50 per person. Given the expertise and enthusiasm of our guide, Jimmy, the range of wines to taste (seven, including a dessert wine) and the quality of the environment, it was excellent value. There was also a nice selection of cheeses, meats, bread etc to go with the wine. This would be a top choice for anyone with an enthusiam for wine and who wants to find out more without being patronised.
