COVID -19 - 2021 UPDATE
COVID-19 FEBRUARY UPDATE
We hope you’re keeping well and that like us are welcoming the news that the lockdown restrictions may soon be coming to a close!
On Monday 22 February, the UK Prime Minister announced the roadmap for bringing England out of the current lockdown measures.
The intention is to open certain parts of the economy in five-week gaps dependent on the data they receive about Covid-19 cases (and other elements) with a full lift of restrictions by June 21 earliest (albeit social distancing will remain for some time thereafter).
Here at Essex Wine School we are currently working through the detailed review in order to determine when we can offer in-person classes. Rest assured we will contact all students currently booked onto in-person courses and tastings at least two weeks in advance of their start date to advise them whether their class is going ahead or the options if we have to postpone.
All online tastings will proceed as planned and please do keep an eye out on the website for new online tastings that we will launch.
We thank you for your patience.
ONLINE wine tastings- fun, informative and sociable (click to find out more).
We also have ONLINE WSET courses - gain a qualification in wine studying at home.

What to do if you are holding a credit from a postponed event
Thank you to all those guests who agreed to hold a credit in lieu of us being able to deliver their booked event. Your support and understanding is very much appreciated. We have been contacting guests booked on postponed events but if you have not heard from us, please contact us and we will confirm your credit voucher.
We are transferring postponed bookings free of charge. Many guests have already been transferred to future events but if you are holding a credit and want to transfer to a future event as our new schedule is published please just e-mail us or give us a call. If you were booked on a postponed event with a gift voucher, we will honour the full value of your voucher. If you need an extension to the validity period of your gift voucher, no problem, we will arrange that for you.
We look forward to welcoming guests back to Norfolk Wine School again. In the meantime, take care, stay safe and we look forward to enjoying a glass of wine with you.
With kind regards,
