Welcome To Bristol Wine School

A warm welcome to Bristol's very own independent wine school. We take a hands-on, unstuffy approach to wine and have earned a great reputation for our fun, informative courses and tasting events in Bristol & Bath.

Our tutors have studied with WSET, have many years experience in the catering & wine trade, and truly enjoy every opportunity to share their passion and knowledge.   

At our wine courses and events you can expect to feel welcome, have fun, meet new people and try something new in relaxed and friendly surroundings.

Courses in Bristol are hosted in the award-winning Bordeaux Quay Restaurant on the historic harbourside.

We also run a wine school in Bath for IWSC regional wine merchant of the year Great Western Wine.

“Many thanks for running the course... The teaching standard was excellent - informative, relaxed, fun, not patronising (which ‘wine people’ can be!) and clearly very knowledgeable." 

"The course provided excellent value for money and all the wines were great! I look forward to attending further courses, I had a great time and learned a lot!”
