Read our latest Trip Advisor reviews for wine tastings in London
"WLWS is simply the most fun, non-stuffy and laid-back way of learning about wine! They teach with so much passion and energy that you just want to keep coming back for more! By now I've done the 8-week introduction course, a 4 week regional course, a wine trip and many many one-night tastings but have already signed up for the next one!" (Barbara, 28/05/13 via Trip Advisor)
The wine courses and wine tastings focus on enjoying wine and learning more in a relaxed and informal setting, with friendly people. We help people enjoy wine that little drop more. If you know what you like and want to find out why, our courses provide the answer.
