Our clients say...

I just wanted to say a big thanks for your great attitude and professional, straightforward tuition which helped me pass the Level 3 exam with distinction.   It was a great course with a happy end!


Hi Jane, I just wanted to provide some feedback on the WSET L3 course I completed this weekend. I was really pleased with how the course went – I thought Chris was an excellent tutor, and had a and had a great number of tricks for helping us remember key facts for the exam. I also found the technique he helped us develop for the Systematic Approach to Tasting in particular brought a lot of sense to the whole exercise, and made the exam feel a whole lot less daunting.


Join us for a one-day wine course as part of a weekend package including meals and accommodation, all from as little as £149.
