Absolutely fantastic evening. Very informative and I had the opportunity to try some excellent wines. Can't wait for the next one! Would definitely recommend to friends and family
Last updated: September 27th. 2017. Our wine tasting Manchester events are great fun whether you are a beginner or seasoned enthusiast! You can enjoy one of our regular ticketed Manchester wine tasting courses in the city centre, or perhaps have us organise your private party for friends or work colleagues.
The school was founded and is run by John Callow DipWSET who has many year's experience of the wine and spirit trade. Northern Wine School is completely independent which allows us to recommend great wines at all of our wine tasting Manchester occasions. You can be sure that our wine choices are not influenced by anyone because we do not sell wine!
I was working for a major wine merchant. Part of my job was to run tasting events ~ this was the part of it I loved.
But there just wasn't enough time for me to really share my love of wine with others. Then at a tasting event I had a "light bulb moment" A guest said "You should do this all the time-you obviously relish sharing your love and knowledge about wine".
The next day Northern Wine School was born. Within weeks of having the idea I had left my job and the school was my full time passion.
A know-it-all wine snob can ruin a wine experience by forcing the “right” agenda down your throat,
along with the “right” wine. ~ Wine Folly
Enjoy fun relaxed Wine Tasting Manchester events with great wine & good company. Wine is a social pleasure-taste it with others who share your interest.
Join us to enjoy regular wine tastings & wine courses in Greater Manchester. Also private tastings for groups of friends, family or work mates. Find new wines to savour and where to buy them at the best prices. We don't sell wine, so are able to offer you unbiased help and advice.
Wide range of Manchester Wine Tastings & Manchester Wine Courses.
These are held all over The Greater Manchester region
We hold our Manchester wine tastings and courses in the centre of the city. At the moment we use two major venues for our Manchester wine tasting courses. These are Manchester Hall and The Bridge Tavern, both on Bridge Street, just off Deansgate.
Many of our Discovery wine tastings are held at Manchester Hall and most other wine tasting events are now held at The Bridge Tavern.
You can enjoy a whole range of wine tastings with us:

Manchester wine tasting events follow the same pattern as those in any other city. They give you the chance to sample a range of wines in the company of like minded people. You will be able to try far more wines than you could easily taste at home.
Some tastings are slightly more formal but usually relaxed and fun. You will probably be seated around a table and watch a presentation as you taste.
Other events ( usually those provided by wine merchants for example) are even less formal. You will be able to wander around and try wines provided by the seller.
The short answer is no. Professional tasters do because they wouldn't be able to taste many wines at a time if they swallowed all of them. You are provided with spittoons at all of our wine tasting Manchester events. Whether you use them is entirely up to you. As you are advised not to drive, but to use public transport, then drinking and driving is not an issue.
Because the sense of smell is so important in your enjoyment of wine at our wine tasting events in Manchester this means:
Our Discovery Course is a great place to start your wine tasting journey. See more details on The Discovery Page ...
