Wine Tasting & Wine Courses in Notts Derby

Notts Derby Wine School

A very warm welcome to Notts Derby Wine School! We are a local, independent wine education company based in Nottingham and Derby and specialise in hosting wine courses and tastings in Nottingham and Derby city centres. Our events are open to everyone - no previous wine tasting experience is necessary. We are also part of the UKs leading provider of professional WSET courses. 

Our events are run by friendly wine tutors and are relaxed and informal with an emphasis upon learning by tasting. Whether you are new to wine and want to learn more, want to explore different countries or grape varieties, or simply want to enjoy good company and good times, we have a tasting for you.

The wine school is owned by the effervescent Debbie Ault who has a great fun and enthusiastic style of communicating her love for all things alcoholic!

With her fun style and team of tutors you're in for a good time
