About Us

Sussex Local Wine School - Better wines, better planet

Welcome to Sussex Wine School, an independent wine education company based in Brighton. We're here to inspire you about wine, to help you discover new wines and wine styles and to build your confidence about wine.

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. We are the leading provider of WSET courses in Sussex and an approved provider of Wine Scholar Guild courses and Capstone California courses.  No previous experience is necessary. 

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.
