His love of wine grew when working at a national merchants.
He wanted to avoid wine snobbery.
You can gain from his professional knowledge-no matter what you know now.
People just like you.
Come alone, as a couple or in a larger group. All are welcome and you will meet new people who share your love of wine. Many of our guests have made new friends too!
Where we can from local stores.
You will be able to find most of the wines used easily. Learn where to find the best value. We never sell wine.
We use local producers of other products-for example cheese on our Wine & Cheese events.
Above all fun!
Enjoy learning with our Aroma Kit-especially imported from France. Everybody loves trying this-can you guess the scents?
Definitely no stuffiness-you will enjoy a "laid back" time that's for sure!
I had such a brilliant time learning about wines very pleased to say john was very informative and knows his stuff. Wines where just as tasty as the snacks he provided. I would do this again without hesitation it was so easy to find and after a long day at work this made my night
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.
