Latest Covid-19 update


Covid 19 - Update 19th July 2021

The UK's third national lockdown restrictions formally end today so this is a good time to take stock and to bring you up to date with our wine tastings and courses.

Firstly, Victoria and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported Kent Wine School since March 2020 and kept us going. This includes our customers, wine suppliers, logisitics partners and the team at Hotel du Vin. 

We will be offering you a exciting programme of live and online tastings and courses going forward. Numbers at our live events are typically 14 people in the room plus the tutor. With popular events we may increase this to between 15-20 people in a larger room.

Covid has not gone away even though most restrictions have been lifted and the safety of our customers, tutors and venue partners remains our key priority.

This is what to expect when you attend one our live events:

  • Hand sanitiser available 
  • Ventilated room
  • Place settings spread out as much as the room allows (although we cannot guarantee 1m plus)
  • Your tutor will continue to pour your wines and serve nibbles with a mask on

Your booking is safe with us. If Covid restrictions return and we are not able to run an event that you have booked, your booking will automatically be converted to a credit valid for one year. Rescheduling is simple: keep an eye on the website and when you see a date you would like to attend you can email or call to let us know.

If you aren't ready to join us yet – no problem – we are continuing our online events in the comfort of your own home with matched wines and food suggestions for the ultimate night in!
