Shropshire Wine School

Welcome to Shropshire Wine School. We are an independent wine education company which hosts fun-filled wine tastings, wine courses and gin tastings in Shrewsbury and other Shropshire locations (no experience necessary).

We hold most of our events at the Lion Hotel on Shrewsbury’s Wyle Cop, but will also come to your business or home address for corporate and private wine tastings.

We do not sell wine so there is absolutely no “sales pitch”. Our philosophy is “wine tasting for everyone”, so if you’ve always wanted to find out a little more about wine but were put off by the slightly stuffy image then we can help.

Book onto one of our events are you will:

  • Taste and learn in a relaxed setting
  • Improve your confidence when buying wine
  • Discover new wines to enjoy
  • Make new friends with like-minded people

We also deliver professional Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) courses at Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, so if you want to immerse yourself and learn about wine like a professional then we can deliver that too.

In addition to wine, we also host Premium gin classes where you can learn about the different styles and the history of this extremely popular spirit

As well as regular events, we also sell gift vouchers so if you have a wine (or gin) enthusiast among your family or friends we have a lovely present idea for you.

Chief tutor is Gary Carter who holds the WSET Diploma in Wine and Spirits and is a Certified Wine Educator.
