Wine Tasting Sussex - Welcome to Sussex Wine School

A very warm welcome to Sussex Wine School - an independent wine education company. We run wine tastings and wine courses in central Brighton (at Hotel du Vin) and in central Tunbridge Wells (at Hotel du Vin and The Black Pig) for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it. No previous wine tasting experience is necessary. 

  • Improve your confidence selecting wine
  • Unravel the mysteries of wine lists and labels
  • Taste wine and learn about it in a relaxed setting
  • Learn how to pair wine with food

Our wine courses and wine tastings in Sussex and Kent focus on enjoying wine and learning more in a relaxed and informal setting.
We do not sell wine so we can offer unbiased and independent advice on anything to do with the world of wine. 

"Excellent. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The course was useful and interesting. Jonny made everybody feel at ease. All questions were answered thoroughly without anybody made to feel that their questions were too basic. We are hoping to go on another course later in the year."  Claire, Brighton

Gift vouchers can be sent to you or to the recipient with a personal message inside.
