Highly recommended

I've done both exam courses and social tastings with Jonny and they are always excellent. You can gain a lot of information and enjoy it at the same time.

Great thing to do in Lockdown - probably even better in person

Well worth a try - even if you have no wine experience.

Virtual tasting is a great alternative activity during lockdown, with some great wines you might not have tasted.

I have just successfully completed the WSET 3 course with Jonny and loved every minute. Jonny is an excellent teacher, knowledgeable and engaging. I highly recommend both Jonny and the course. I'm also looking forward to future tastings, both educational and entertaining.
Thanks

Thorough and professional training
Nov 2019 • Business
The WSET level 3 course is very challenging but Jonny gives you the best possible chance of getting through it. The course is extremely well-presented and plenty of homework is set to ensure students have the tools to stay on track. Continual review and excellent study and exam tips definitely helped me fit this in to an already busy schedule successfully.

Top notch education
Jan 2020 • Solo
I have completed WSET 2/3 both with distinction thanks to the fine tuition from Jonny. I am currently doing the French Wine Scholar course which is loads of fun with a great section of wine and cheese. If you’re thinking about it then this is a great place to learn. Hotel Du Vin is also a great location.

Most enjoyable and informative evening
Nov 2019
I attended a tasting evening at the Hotel du Vin with a friend having been given vouchers as presents. The focus was on a single Italian variety that I had been introduced to many years ago but not had the opportunity to drink recently as it is not widely distributed in the UK.
Jonny gave a very knowledgeable presentation that was pitched just right for the audience which included students taking an exam course on Italian wines, regular enthusiasts and keen novices such as ourselves. We tasted 7 examples and Jonny was very inclusive of everybody's tasting notes and opinions, which helped to ensure a relaxed and engaging experience.
I would recommend these evenings to anyone looking for a fun way to learn more about wine.

Wine and Tapas Pairing Experience at Hotel Du Vin
Nov 2019
What a great evening. We were presented with 7 glasses of wine from different regions in Spain and had delicious tapas to go with the wine. Jonny had a PowerPoint running to help explain the different areas, climates and methods of wine production. I learnt some new things and also had some myths quashed such as a flat bottom bottle is not a good one and many more. I felt comfortable in the group asking basic questions and found out lots of us were in the same boat.
I was given a voucher for two for this experience as a gift. The voucher also included a lovely bottle of wine to take away and a wine book, which is really interesting. I'm looking forward to next doing the chocolate and wine pairing experience. And after that...and after that...

An excellent informative evening
Nov 2019
We have done 4 Sussex Wine school evenings now, including a gin one and a champagne one.
They are always excellent and Johnny strikes just the right (for us) balance between enough information, some participation and a good pace.
They are great fun and you mix with new friends.
For us and our friends, who enjoy wine but not at a "geeky" level they are brilliant.
