"We originally went on a 1 night taster, and it was so much fun we signed up for the 8 week course, and then some other specials.All the evenings were fun and informative, the style is relaxed, informal and inclusive, full of useful information and tips, and plenty of wine!"

Our World of Wine Course runs one evening per week for 8 weeks and is designed as a practical introduction to the world of wine. It is structured for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it in a fun and relaxed environment. You need no previous experience – the emphasis is on learning by your own experience of tasting the different varieties of wine. It is also a great way to meet new friends who share your enjoyment of wine.
Please Note: the £95 course fee excludes the cost of wine and materials, which is priced at £10 per evening payable on the night. The total charge per evening is therefore just under £22, representing a total Saving of £25 off the price of the eight evenings booked seperately (like having one night free)!
" Having just completed the 8-week course I can honestly say I can't think of a better way to spend a Thursday evening. Jeremy Blood is an outstanding teacher; I have learned so much under his expert guidance - and not only that, he makes it great fun as well. I've tasted some terrific wines, had my eyes opened to new wine experiences, and been inspired to try new wine and food combinations; also I've met some really nice people on the course. I recommend the Surrey Wine School 8-week course wholeheartedly".Eugene Visited December 2015
This 8-week Wine Course can also be purchased as a great gift idea- perfect for birthdays and special anniversaries!
