Recent 5-star Tripadvisor Review: "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. Highly recommend Kent Wine School - a warm welcome, comfortable surroundings, good food and GREAT wine!".
