About Us

Sussex Wine School - Better wines, better planet

Our mission is to empower people to choose wines that are better for themselves and for the planet.

We do this by sharing our knowledge of wine through tastings and courses with wine lovers and wine professionals in Sussex, helping them understand where wine comes from, how it is made and introducing them to a wide range of grape varieties and wine regions from around the world.

You'll find useful information about the wines used at our tastings and courses that will help you make more informed decisions when you buy wine. These include awards for taste and quality, certifications for sustainable environmental and social practices, information on grape growing and winemaking practices and bottle weights. 

We partner with other Sussex based businesses and people to deliver our tastings and courses and pledge to give 1% of our net sales revenues every year to charities working to improve the natural environment in Sussex.
