Spent a very enjoyable evening with Mark learning about the wines of north east Italy, an area I knew nothing about. Tasted 6 very different wines, white and red, which really showed the diversity of the region and what is produced there. If you want...More

I recently attended an introductory wine tasting event at the Cambridge Wine School and was pleasantly surprised. The presentation was not at all 'stuffy' and there was no one attempting to sell cases of wine. The presentation was informative and engaging and easy to follow...More

Fantastic one day course! Extremely informative and some great wines to taste. Mark is a brilliant tutor, explaining everything in a comprehensive, yet, easy to understand way. Booked straight on to level 2.

Well pitched and well taught, after the one day course I am already looking at and tasting wines in a different way. Keen to find time for Mark's WSET Level 2.

Hello Preston Thanks so much for your great review and for doing so well on the course. the WSET Level 2 course is definitely the one people say gives them confidence with wine. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Mark

"Go away, and come back with wine." That's the kind of joke you could hear during these courses. And guess what ? That's even not a joke. I've just passed my WSET Level 2 after having passed the Level 1 a few months ago. The...More
