“Great fun, great wines” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 July 2013 by Twinkly "We've not been disappointed yet after attending several courses at the west London wine school in the past year or so. It's great that they give us a chance to taste some wines we might never get a chance to try, and there's not been a bad choice yet. I'd thoroughly recommend their courses to anyone wanting to improve their existing knowledge about wine, or even for a novice" (via Trip Advisor)
