We recently attended the Posh v Plonk wine tasting evening held in Reading. It was our first experience with the Thames Valley Wine School and we found it very enjoyable. It was a relaxed evening with Phill providing 8 wines (4 white & 4 red) for us to sample and having chatted among ourselves Phill then gave us a brief explanation about the particular grape, region and price. Informative and fun !
It was about educating people and NOT about trying to sell us some wine. We would happly book for another event and we would recommend the Thames Valley Wine School to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about wine in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Attended the Artisan Cheese and Wine Tasting event last night, the array of cheeses and wines that Phill recommended were amazing on their own but once combined absolutely out of this world.

Phill's knowledge is very informative and his delivery is unpretentious, just a normal guy with a love for food and drink he wishes to share. Thanks Phill for another wonderful evening.

This is the second event with Thames Valley Wine School that I have attended the first being Gin Tasting and I am looking forward to attending more in the future.

Brilliant evening with Phil learning about cheese and wine - can’t recommend the Thames Valley wine school enough for helping you along the journey of wine. Phil is highly experienced and well travelled so this makes the perfect evening for bringing friends/family along to learn more.

We really weren’t sure what to expect of the evening and were thoroughly delighted by the Thames Valley Wine Schools Spanish Wine and Tapas evening. Light hearted, informative and really quite yum. I’d recommend joining in.
