Wine Tasting & Wine Courses in Cambridge

Cambridgeshire Local Wine School

Do you like wine and want to know more about it? Knowing a bit more can help you make smarter choices in shops and restaurants. 

At Cambridgeshire Local Wine School we offer fun and informative wine tastings and wine courses in Cambridge and Ely. We love to show you why each wine tastes the way it does and how to glean key information from the label or wine list.


Our flagship 6-part World of Wine course starts again soon, introducing you to different regions of the world every week, sampling and discovering their wines. It's flexible - if you need to skip an evening, you can pick it up when it repeats.

We are also a leading provider of WSET courses in Cambridge (Wine & Spirit Education Trust). We offer WSET Level 1 in Wines, WSET Level 2 in Wines and WSET Level 3 in Wines hosted conveniently near Cambridge rail station.

Most of our events are held at venues in Cambridge, but we also organise events in Ely and corporate events and private wine tastings in the surrounding areas.

Discover the World of Wine

Join us on a journey around the world of wine.

Our flagship 6-part evening class is flexible and introduces you to the whole world of wine over 6 Tuesday evenings.

Or join us for single evening tastings from introductory to a specific region.

Wine tasting in a beautiful college

Some of our Saturday courses take place in a Cambridge college in the city centre, while others are hosted in Madingley Hall, a 16th-century Cambridge University venue set in 8 acres of parkland. The hall was once rented by Queen Victoria for her son Edward Prince of Wales to live while studying at Cambridge.

Join us for a day of fun!

Cambridge Wine School

Cambridgeshire Local Wine School is proud to work with local hospitality businesses and venues to run our events. We do not sell wine - we buy wines tasted on our courses from local and regional independent wine merchants.

We run a wide selection of events and are also available to tailor fun wine tasting experiences for private groups.
