A very warm welcome to Manchester Wine School. We are different because we do not sell wine! The school is owned by Lisa, a 30-something female with a young family, a love of wine and 10 years experience of teaching. We are a local independent company running fun and informal Manchester Wine Tastings and Manchester Wine Courses across Greater Manchester and North Cheshire for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it; no previous wine tasting experience is necessary. From wine tasting days/evenings to food and wine matching experiences, as well as corporate wine events and private wine tastings, even accredited wine and spirit qualifications (from WSET), we focus on enjoying wine and learning about it in a relaxed and friendly setting. If you know what you like and want to find out why - or if you want to broaden your wine enjoyment and knowledge - we can help!

An enjoyable afternoon in a classroom of 20 ‘educacated’ by Phil from Manchester Wine School. Prosecco on arrival and then 6 whites and 6 reds of old world wines vs New. World. Good fun, nice wines and learned a thing or two.
