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

National lockdown Thurs 5th Nov - Wed 2nd Dec 2020
Our in venue evening tastings scheduled to take place between Thurs 5th Nov and Wed 2nd Dec inclusive will now not be taking place. This is in line with the government's national lockdown advice for people to stay at home where they can. We have set new dates for these events and contacted everyone booked onto them by email. We have also put together a great range of virtual online tastings for November and December 2020 all of which are live on our wesbite here

We expect to be open again for live in person tastings from Thurs 3rd December. See here for more details of what to expect when you join us in person.

If you are not ready to join us live, please join us online at home. We have a great programme of ONLINE wine tastings and ONLINE WSET courses ready for you to book.

"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
