The Great Wine School

A warm welcome to The Great Wine School, a partnership between award-winning Bath wine merchant Great Western Wine and Bristol Wine School

We take a hands-on, unstuffy approach to wine and have earned a great reputation for our fun, informative courses and tasting events. Our tutors have studied with WSET, have many years experience in the catering & wine trade, and truly enjoy every opportunity to share their passion and knowledge. 

At our wine courses and events you can expect to feel welcome, have fun, meet new people and try something new in relaxed and friendly surroundings.

Courses are hosted at the friendly and atmospheric shop at Great Western Wine, or our acclaimed partner venues in central Bath - Allium Brasserie and The Chequers.

“Many thanks for running the course... The teaching standard was excellent - informative, relaxed, fun, not patronising (which ‘wine people’ can be!) and clearly very knowledgeable. The course provided excellent value for money and all the wines were great! I look forward to attending further courses, I had a great time and learned a lot!”
