8 Week Intro Courses

REVIEW: "Premier Wine School: I’ve been a regular for some years now and enjoy discovering new wines and putting to practice what I’ve learned... It’s a great place to learn but equally a great way of having and comparing some excellent wines with like minded people - whether a beginner or expert! (Surfmist 04/14 via TripAdvisor)

The 8-week World Course is structured as a practical introduction to the world of wine. It is designed specifically for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it. You do not need any previous experience, and the emphasis is on learning by tasting different varieties of wine. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your love of wine. You will soon learn which wines you like and where to buy them.

  • Over 60 wines will be tasted in 8 weeks
  • Retail prices of wines tasted will be from £6 to over £30
  • Discover where to obtain today's best value for money wines.
  • Wine & Food Matching advice
  • Common wine faults - how to spot them
  • Storing & Serving wine advice
  • Taste the worlds major Grape Varieties – Shiraz, Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Chenin Blanc, & many others

This 8-week Wine Course can also be purchased as a great Gift idea for any occasion

Course Fee Structure:

The course fee is £205. As a way of spreading out the cost, we ask for £125 payment on booking and then £10 in cash each evening. A great value and a saving on booking each night separately (this works out at approximately £25 per evening, usual cost if you booked on a single evening is £27.50 to £35 per evening). 

WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS ANY EVENINGS?

Not a problem. As long as you let us know 3 days before the course date, we can transfer you onto a subsequent 8 Week Course session, or provide you with a voucher valid for any of our West London Wine School courses and tastings. If at the last minute you can't make it to the session you are more than welcome to send a substitute.

"They are very flexible with the dates. If I could not take a class on a particuar day, I could have easily re-scheduled it for the next course. For someone who cannot commit herself to stay in London for 8 consecutive weeks it works out really well..." (Anna G, June 2013)
