"Top quality experience with a tremendously knowledgable guide"
- Derek M, July 2018 

"A really key 'plus' about these TVWS evenings is that the School is not affiliated to any wine grower or supplier, thus leaving the choice of wines being tasted entirely up to the host himself"
- Beelzebubblensqueak, June 2018

"Great event, would recommend it to anybody who wants to start or continue on their journey to better understanding wine." 
- Shale3, May 2018
