Wine Tasting Hertfordshire at Hertfordshire Wine School

Hello and welcome to Hertfordshire Wine School - an independent wine education company. We run wine tastings and wine courses for people who like wine and would like to learn more. No previous wine tasting experience is necessary. Our wine courses and wine tastings focus on the enjoyment of wine and learning more in a relaxed and informal setting, with friendly people. Take a look at this short video to see what what we do:

Our face to face events are restarting. We have been working hard behind the scenes with our venues in Harpenden, Hitchin and St Albans and will be resuming courses and tastings during 2021. Each venue has introduced enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures and we manage the numbers of attendees permitted at each event in line with guidelines in force at the time. We will continue to monitor government restrictions as they evolve and will issue any updates required in our guidance here and in our monthly newsletters.

In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy wine tasting from the comfort of your own home at one of our online events and our online WSET courses running until May are available to book now.

Our currently scheduled tastings and courses are available as Gift Vouchers for that perfect Christmas, anniversary, birthday or other special occasion present. 'Open' gift vouchers, for use at any of our other locations across the UK, and which are valid for two years, are available from other schools - please visit Local Wine School for a full list. . 

A typical range of courses suits all levels of wine knowledge and experience:

· The 8-week introductory world of wine course provides a great introduction to wine covering a wide range of topics in our virtual journey to twelve different wine-producing countries

· Our Food & Wine Matching evenings enable you to learn which food goes with which wine, and why, as we try different food samples with a range of wine styles

· The daytime Saturday course with lunch is a great way of just sipping ten delicious wines, plus Champagne and a delicious lunch at the award-winning Thompsons restaurant in St Albans

"Thank you - we very much enjoyed the day. And, in fact, have not tasted a glass of wine in quite the same way since" (Attendee on Saturday wine course)

· Or try our one evening introductory and themed tastings.
