Here is what one of our customers wrote about the Saturday course in April 2015
'I have just been on the Surrey Wine School Saturday course and cannot recommend it more highly. I went to learn the basics of wine tasting which I did in spade, but I am not sure I expected to have such a truly enjoyable day too. Jeremy is great and delivered a perfect balance of a most informative but fun time. I am going to go back for more, not only because I want to now learn more, but because it was such a good day out. Thank you to Surrey Wine School. Ingrid via tripdvisor
