I sat my WSET Level 2 in Spirits with John and I achieved 48/50 (a Distinction!). I definitely don't think I could have achieved this grade without his support.
He is knowledgeable, passionate and down to earth. John was always on hand whenever i needed any questions answering. Whether you're new to Wines & Spirits, or have been in the business a while, I would highly recommend sitting your qualification with him.
Whether you're in the hospitality industry and want to up-skill, thinking of a career change, are a student and want to increase your employability or are just interested in learning about wines and spirits- This course is for you.
For Level 1 & 2, NO previous experience is necessary! Just an enthusiastic approach to learning more about wine and spirits. Everything you need to know to become a globally recognised expert will be taught on the course, with all learning materials included.
Study alongside other people in a classroom course under the guidance of a certified educator with a great selection of tasting samples included, or at your own pace online from the comfort of your home with help and support from Northern Wine School.

I did the level 2 wines and spirits course recently. It was most enjoyable and I learned a lot during the 3 sessions. John is very knowledgeable about his wines and brings a great selection of wines to try and help one become an educated taster. The group was fun and we all had a great time tasting and discussing the wines with John keeping us right! The examination is not bad provided one reads the course material and the book we received as part of the course will serve as a useful reminder.

John Callow DipWSET
After university, I worked in the drinks industry for some years. My real passion was in helping others choose and buy wine well. I decided to learn as much as possible about the wines and spirits I enjoyed. Over the years I have earned my WSET Diploma, been accepted by The Association of Wine Educators and become a certified Sherry and Sake Educator.
My mission is to for you to gain more enjoyment from your favourite tipple. Whether a student in the trade or a wine enthusiast I want to help you benefit from my experience and knowledge.
I recently completed the WSET Level 2 course and examination with Northern Wine School. It really was an excellent course and was very well run & taught by John. I learnt a lot and got to taste some great wines.
