"I went with a friend to the Australian and New Zealand wines course in mid-August,...our tutor engaged the class with his combination of passion, irreverence and humour. The content of the course was excellent, with lots of interesting facts and figures about these wine and wine in general. The atmosphere is fun, convivial and social; you are encouraged to discuss the wines with others on your table and feedback to the whole group at certain points. I would definitely recommend the East London Wine School whether you're a novice, newbie or connoisseur" Lucy, Aug 2016

“Thank you for taking us through the course. I found it really interesting and thought the recaps you did at the beginning of each class were also very helpful! I've been tasting a few wines since, and am regularly referring back to the booklet which is very user friendly.” Zoe, Merit in WSET Level 2, July 2017
