Welcome to Essex Wine School, an independent wine education company whose aim is to provide wine tasting for everyone! As we do not sell wine, we can show you where to buy the best wines locally and at the best prices. We work with local independent wine merchants as well as national merchants to bring you the best tasting & most interesting wines currently available.
Tastings are hosted by Neil Bull. A life-long wine enthusiast, Neil decided to develop his interest and started studying with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), whilst still working in the city. He completed level 2 and 3 and then graduated with a level 4 diploma in 2010. Wanting to share his enthusiasm on the subject, and with a natural talent for teaching, Neil became an approved programme provider in level 1, 2 and 3 making one of only around 500 people in the worldto be able to do so. He led a number of highly successful courses, both private and corporate in numerous locations around the region.
The Wine Tastings and Wine Courses are, above all, fun, entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and usually include visual aids and notes. Professional ISO tasting glasses are provided and no previous wine tasting experience is required. Our guests come by themselves, in couples or in larger groups and it is also a great way to meet others with the same interest in tasting and learning about wine.
Feel free to contact Neil on 01371 267260 or 07743 897562. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
