|To get the most from wine, whether you are a keen wine lover, joining the trade, work in the hospitality industry or are progressing in your career ... you need to have a grounding in why wines taste how they do, which wine is best suited to any particular occasion and how to evaluate and judge different wines.
We are an Approved Progamme Provider for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) which is the only wine & spirit education organisation approved by the UK government as a national awarding body of vocational qualifications. It operates in over 60 countries to provide vocational awards for those in, or wishing to join the drinks industry or just want to have an recognised professional qualification.
On the first Friday of every month we hold an informal - yet informative - tutored tasting at the White Rock Hotel, Hastings, TN34 1JU from 6:30pm until 8:30pm.
