“Fabulous private wine tasting, so pleased”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We booked a private wine tasting with Justin very last minute. He was marvellous, from having a flexible pricing structure (we weren't initially sure of group size) to designing an evening that would work both for wine geeks and wine novices. We did an Old World vs New World quiz tasting, with trivia and technical facts, lots of comparisons, and a competitive element. Approximately half of our group are scientists by trade, and the other half just a normal mixture of things; although we hadn't told Justin this he nevertheless delivered an evening that was spot on- there was enough detail for the nerds but everything was explained with such clarity and wit that even the least scientific said she'd learned a lot!

This was great value for money, relaxed, entertaining, easy to organise...brilliant. Looking forward to booking onto one of his evening courses now!

“Great New Glasgow Wine School”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

I visited the Glasgow Wine School for the first time on 10 Dec for an Introductory Wine Evening. I was a little apprehensive as I wasnt sure if it would be suitable for beginners. It was great - Justin immediately put everyone at their ease by telling us that WE were the best judges of how good a wine was. He proceeded to pour a delicious selection of wines - all bought from local wine retailers in Glasgow.

He showed us how different wines tasted with food - that was a revelation - I will def be buying more French & Italian wines after this tasting! Great value for money & Justin has also an interesting story to tell - he is a winemaker from South Africa! I will also definitely be returning for more courses!
