West of England Wine School

The School is the education arm of the West of England Wine and Spirit Association, which has been in existence and teaching very successfully for nearly 50 years.

We run courses at all levels of the WSET qualifications, which are the most widely recognized trade qualifications and respected worldwide in all areas of the drinks industry, from importing, distribution through all aspects of retail and into the leisure sector too. We also teach those who are not in the industry but just want to know as much as they can about this fascinating world.

We have an experienced pool of teachers, including 8 Masters of Wine, a couple of Wine makers, several specialist importers, retailers and WSET Certified Educators. Meet the educators

We train 100 or more people every year and our students achieve excellent results, often gaining prizes and scholarships.

Courses are held in Bristol but can also be arranged anywhere in the southwest if sufficient numbers can be gathered in one location. We also can arrange bespoke courses for inhouse training too.

You do not have to be a member of the West of England Wine & Spirit Association to enrol. While you are studying with us and for two years afterwards you enjoy free membership of the Association.
