Surrey Wine School, an independent wine education company whose aim is to provide Wine Tasting for everyone! We are not tied to any wine merchant or retailer and so we are able to offer impartial advice and taste only wines we believe are good examples of their type.
We like to teach about wine by concentrating on the flavours and aromas of each example. We look at the wine’s taste profile and explain how the characteristics of the grape can be influenced by the climate and local winemaking styles.
As we do not sell wine, we can show you 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 & most interesting wines currently available.
The Wine Tastings and Wine Courses are, above all, fun, 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.
