Overview

Bringing the enjoyment of learning about wine to Oxford, in relaxed, informal surroundings. No wine tasting experience necessary, just a love of wine and a desire to learn more! Come to a tasting by yourself or with others, good way to meet like-minded people. As well as regular events at St Peters College, we also hold tastings for business groups and private parties for all occasions.

Our host Laurence was great, very knowledgeable, friendly and paced the evening perfectly. Our group of seven really enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend.

I don't really understand why this is receving such positive reviews. My experience (I attended a single evening tasting session in Oxford) was quite negative. It was more of a plodding seminar than an sophisticated wine tasting event, with the speaker dully presenting a long...More

The 3 day WSET course went beyond the syllabus to make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience, whilst adequately covering the core subject matter. Nick was professional, highly versed in his subject matter and full of entertaining asides to really inspire the class.

A great day at St Peters College Oxford. Nick took us through a wine journey in a very informed but friendly way. We drank plenty of very good wines and the Lunch was very tasty. Would fully recommend and will definitely go to another event!
