WSET and Wine Scholar Guild

WSET qualifications are a 'must-have' for wine enthusiasts and anybody seriously considering a career in the wine or hospitality industries.  Globally recognised, they are the bench mark in wine education. We have 10 years experience, high pass rates, great student feedback and run regular Level 1, 2 and 3 in Wines courses both in classroom and online formats. 

Wine Scholar Guild courses offer students an in depth look at the grapes, wine styles, wine regions, history and geology of France, Italy, and Spain. They are the most comprehensive and up to date wine courses available.

Sussex Wine School

At Sussex Wine School we really love wine and we have been helping people learn about wine in Brighton since 2012. 

We don't sell wine so we buy wine for our tastings and courses from local, regional and national wine companies.

The wine school network we are part of won the Riedel WSET Educator of the Year Award in 2015.
