The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Great wine school!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Did the WSET Level 2 course here with Terry as our teacher. It was a great experience. A small engaged group with an excellent teacher who prepared us well for the exam. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to do their WSET course.

A great choice for Online WSET
Jun 2021 • Solo
There are so many online wine schools that making a choice for my WSET 2 was tricky. I ended up using TripAdvisor and reading the comments in this forum to aid my decision-making process.

I’m so pleased that I chose East London Wine School. My experience was seamless, professional and fun from start to finish. Sam is just so knowledgeable and makes the course accessible for all levels.

Her tips on how to properly taste wine, and her clear, gentle (but no nonsense) guidance on which aspects we should be picking up in each glass of wine was invaluable. It will stay with me as I pursue the next course.

It’s surprising how effective and efficient my online wine course was compared to a ‘face to face’ experience. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent experience undertaking our WSET Level 1 course. The instructor was welcoming, helpful and extremely knowledgable. I would highly recommend it for anyone remotely interested in wine. Looking forward to WSET Level 2!

Hi Roland, thank you so much for the review and we're so pleased you enjoyed the course. Hopefully you're putting your new found wine skills to great use when perusing the "wine wall". Hopefully see you in person soon. Best wishes, Sam

The Classics - what a great wine tasting event! We're so pleased you enjoyed it and as you say, nice to see and chat to people on Zoom, when lockdown was so restrictive. Hopefully see you in person soon, best wishes, Sam

Great online wine tasting
Nov 2020 • Business
Great wine tasting on French wines. Sam is incredibly knowledgeable and has great passion in her job. We were a big group but she managed to keep everyone engaged the whole time, although we had to do it online because of Covid. There was also an issue with delivery that she managed to sort out. Finally great buying recommendations! Would definitely recommend!

WSET Level 2 Award in Wine
Oct 2020
I have been meaning to write since I completed the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines earlier last month. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course. Terry was a fantastic tutor and really helped made what, at first, seemed an impenetrable subject really accessible and easy to understand (he also sounds remarkably like Hugh Grant when he speaks!) I thought the format of the course and all the materials were very clear and easy to digest too. Regardless of whether I passed the exam or not (though, I obviously hope I did), I definitely feel like I’ve learned a lot and it will stand me in good stead for future years of wine enjoyment!

Online wine tasting with Sam
Aug 2020 • Friends
Had a great few weeks in the summer doing an online wine tasting with Sam from The East London Wine School. Sam is super knowledgeable but has a fantastic ability to impart that knowledge in a non pretentious easy going way that makes her sessions really sociable. Highly recommended. Looking forward to more of the same in Autumn/Winter.

Wow - that is such lovely feedback - thank you. We do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable, included and everyone has access to great wines. No pretentious malarkey with us! Check out our Winter stuff - Online Port Tasting, very excited about this one - you'll receive 5 different Ports to try and a mystery one - can you guess what it is? There's a prize :-) Plus Red Wines in person or Online. Hopefully see you soon,

Hi Katie - thank you for taking the time to write the review. I really enjoyed teaching the course and we had such a great time. Most people have got their results now - all Merits and Distinctions so far, so thats great news too. Hopefully we'll see you soon - just getting some Level 3 dates onto the website! Stay in touch and let us know what you're drinking. That Portuguese website - what a find!

WSET Level Two Online
Aug 2020
I did the WSET level 2 course during summer. It was run online due to the pandemic and all I can say was that it was a blast. You order the wines in advance so you probably don't taste as many wines as you would on a face to face course, but there is nothing stopping you from going out and getting them. It is a tour of the world of wine.
The course was run very efficiently online, I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to anyone with more than a passing interest in wine.
Thanks East London Wine School
