Wine Tasting Kent - Welcome to Kent Wine School

We are an independent wine education company offering Wine Tastings and Wine Courses in Tunbridge Wells. No previous experience required!

Here are four good reasons to join us for a wine tasting or wine course:

  • you can taste and learn about wine in a fun and relaxed setting
  • you can improve your confidence buying wine
  • you can get inspired about wine
  • you can get a wine qualification

Coronavirus update

Our in venue wine tastings and introductory courses will resume when the current lockdown restrictions are lifted. We hope that this will be at some point in March but are planning for a re-opening of the wine school after Easter 2021. We will contact you directly by email if you have booked a wine tasting or class in January and February 2021 with options to move your booking to a new date or to receive a credit valid for two years.

We are running a limited number of professional wine training qualification courses in March and April 2021 (WSET courses) in Tunbridge Wells. We are legally permitted to run these training and education classes in a Covid safe environment as they are career critical qualifications that cannot be delayed and they cannot be conducted from home. See Business events exemptions.

In the meantime we have a great range of  ONLINE wine tastings and ONLINE WSET courses ready for you to book. Please support us by getting involved in these virtual tastings and courses. They are great fun and they will help you get through the lockdown! 

"A fantastic course that was so much more than an introduction. In 8 weeks, I have learned so much about the world of wine. I looked forward to each session and can't wait for November when I embark on the A-Z of Wine course. I highly recommend Kent Wine School - a warm welcome, comfortable surroundings, good food and great wine!" Joanne, June 2019
