I bought the Discovery course as a gift for my Dad but I also bought a ticket for myself - a complete newbie to wine.
The structure of the session was excellent, with a fun activity to start with and then the tasting to follow. It had a nice informal feel.John was extremely knowledgeable and packed the session full of interesting facts and tips. He was perfect for a complete beginner or a seasoned wine drinker. He provided plenty of resources, some of which I wish I looked at more.
As a cheese lover, this was a perfect bridge to get into wine for me.
I thoroughly recommend this to anybody. I loved it!

Of course you could just open a few bottles at home and taste them all. This is hardly a convivial idea however and it would be slightly better to get together with friends for a tasting. It would be far more informative and sociable to attend a Manchester wine course.
WSET courses are open to everyone who wants a structured way of learning about wine. You can choose to start with levels 1 or 2, but level 3 is best tackled after succeeding with level 2. The first three levels are offered by accredited teachers all over the world and you can certainly attend them locally if you live in the Manchester area.
Level 4-The Diploma is taught by WSET itself in the UK. It is the flagship qualification and is the essential step if you want to try for Master of Wine.
In the Manchester area you will find tastings being held by national chains like Majestic. They always have bottles open on their tasting counter, especially at the weekend. Many independent merchants do something similar and may put together informal tasting evenings. Of course you may have spotted drawbacks to these events-you will only taste wines stocked and may feel under some obligation to make a purchase.
Enjoy Manchester wine courses with us! We are completely independent and do not sell wine. This means we can recommend the best value wines for you to find easily, mostly from within your local area.
These indulgent events involve a luxury tasting. Some include speciality wines, others food and wine matching. We are developing new ideas all the time, so keep calling back to see what's new. A fantastic gift for the "foodie" in your life!
