"An excellent evening, and your expertise and light hearted approach were most appealing." Antony Stark Nov 2011
Welcome to East London Wine School, an independent wine education company offering wine tasting for everyone. We are not tied to any wine merchant or retailer and offer impartial advice, tasting only wines that we believe are good examples of their type.
Our style is to learn about wine by concentrating on the flavours and aromas of the wines. We look at the wine’s taste profile and understand the characteristics of the grape variety, the climate and the winemaking style. Our Evening Tastings include a minimum of 6 wines, and our monthly Saturday Tastings include 12 wines and lunch.
As we do not sell wine we can advise where to buy the best wines locally and at the best prices. We work closely with local independent wine merchants to bring you the best tasting and most interesting wines currently available.
We also focus on food and wine matches, and explain which foods go well with the chosen wines, and more importantly - why!
The tastings and courses are, above all, fun and entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and usually include visual aids and notes. Professional ISO tasting glasses are provided and no previous wine tasting experience is required. Our guests come by themselves, in couples or in larger groups and it is also a great way to meet others with the same interest in tasting and learning about wine.
The wine school network also runs courses in other locations including Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Lancashire and Yorkshire. We will be adding other locations soon.
Not sure which course to choose? Just call me on one of the numbers below or send a note via the contact page, and I will be glad to help you.
