Wine Tasting Newcastle - Welcome to Newcastle Wine School

A very warm welcome to Newcastle Wine School - an independent wine education company, not affiliated to any wine merchants or retailers. We run Wine Tastings and Wine Courses in Newcastle for people who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about it. No previous wine tasting experience is necessary.


You have 2 options for great wine tasting gifts; firstly our Open Gift Vouchers available in a range of values and offering the recipient complete flexibility to choose their own event and date.

Alternatively you can book your loved one on to a specific course or tasting event and we can send it to you as a Gift Voucher, detailing the time and place of the tasting, but no mention of the price. Simply book a place in the usual way and then click on the 'Send me a Gift Voucher' link in the confirmation email. You just need to pick an event....

NEWCASTLE WINE FAIR RETURNS - The ever popular Newcastle Wine Fair returns to the Assembley Rooms, Newcastle on Sunday 28th February 2016 - click here to buy tickets.  

We also run Corporate Wine Tasting Events across the North East; from Boardroom dinners to social evenings, perfect for networking and team rewards as well as private tastings and parties.

The courses and tastings focus on enjoying wine and learning about it in a relaxed setting, with friendly people. Meet new friends who share your love of wine. The courses suit all levels of knowledge and experience, starting with the introductory 8-week World of Wine Course (have to miss an evening or two - no problem - catch the next course - they run continuously through the year!). Whilst the 4-week Short Courses look at a country, region or grape variety  in more depth, and our Saturday Introduction course is a great way of immersing yourself in the subject through a leisurely tasting of over 12 delicious wines with Champagne and a delicious restaurant lunch.

One-Evening Tastings provide the opportunity to try a tasting with no previous experience. Its also a great way to meet people who share your passion for wine - do try one - we are sure you will enjoy it! All our Tastings & Courses are also available as Gift Vouchers for the perfect Gift.

 We also run WSET Courses in Newcastle for enthusiasts & the wine trade - including WSET Level 2 & WSET Level 3 Newcastle.
