'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 April 2015
