Northern Wine School

The Northern Wine School Story

 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.
