“Enjoyed every minute.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

The eight week introduction to wine course was a Christmas present from our daughter. My husband was very sceptical but we both enjoyed every minute of it. The teacher was knowledgeable and enthusiastic but did not take herself too seriously. It was great fun. I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys wine.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

A really good day. Enthusiastic teacher, learnt a lot would go again. Only suggestion is that some sort of savoury biscuits or bread be available during the day -to soak up the delicious wine.

“Not like any other wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

We were given vouchers for a wine tasting and chose a wines of the world tasting looking at wines from Germany, Austria, Alsace, UK and Greece. This course was fully booked online, but after I enquired if they might fit in two more they easily and quickly informed us they we were welcome to attend. Unusually located in the basement of the Big Yellow Storage in Chelsea it is a very unassuming arrival. However the tasting room locate I the purpose build wine cellar is ideal. Cherie the host was welcoming and made us feel at home amongst many who were regulars - the rest of the attendees were a mix of ages and wine knowledge. The wine selection (7 glasses) that night was interesting and we felt well informed thought Cherie's good knowledge and passion for the subject. The evening was engaging and although some of the other regular attendees were rudely talking loudly whilst she was presenting, Cherie handled it well and with good humour so we could relax and enjoy the rest of the tasting, along with the yummy cheeses. meats, bread and crackers.

I would highly recommend this entertaining wine tasting evening, whatever your knowledge of wine, and we came away knowing more and wanting to know more. We will be back for more.

“WSET Level 3 course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

West London Wine School delivers this course with panache. I did the Saturday course with Jimmy, and worried I'd find it hard to concentrate for a whole day after a long week at work, but Jimmy always managed to keep us entertained with his passion for the topic, and his tales of trips around Europe's wine lands. There was plenty of tasting along the way, and Jimmy took the trouble to find interesting and quality wines, so you always knew you'd get to taste something special. If you're looking to do level 3 in a fun, inclusive, unpretentious and social environment, then this is the place for you. I made good friends, drank good wine and pulled off a pass with distinction - a winning formula.

“WSET 2 & 3 and Tastings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Meant to write a review post my level 2 WSET but only managed to get around to it after having done my level 3. The overall rating on the West London Wine School says everything. If you are a wine lover wanting to learn seriously or simply looking for a fun and fulfilling occasion out or anything in between (they offer long term courses as well as one-off tastings), this is the place to be. All tutors at this school received good reviews, Jimmy Smith, the Head Tutor in particular is a devout wine lover - charismatic, passionate and more importantly has much related personal experiences to share in between thoeries. You get to learn some solid stuff as the same time have fun in the process. The school is slightly out of central - if you live close by, great, if not it is worth going the extra mile.
