Heidi Cullip (Owner & Head Tutor)
Heidi is a relatively new addition to North London Wine School but has been a part of the Local Wine School family for a long time as she completed all of her WSET training with us. WSET trained, Heidi's interest in wine has led her to travel widely to vineyards across the world, with a particular emphasis on Argentina, Chile and the Southern US states. Heidi also has a keen interest in English wines and is determined to visit as many English vineyards as possible in search of her favourite.
Its the all-important infectious enthusiasm and passion for the world of wine that enables Heidi to communicate to her audience without the use of confusing (& boring!) technical facts often detailed in wine tastings.
"At North London Wine School we're aiming to demystify wine by focussing on the flavours, aromas and on the elements which make each wine taste as it does. We want our customers, at any level, to increase their enjoyment of wine by understanding what they like, why they like it and what interesting alternatives they may also enjoy. It's all about a taste trial and error through enjoyable tasting and learning. Armed with a few simple pieces of information, our customers can go out into the world of wine feeling more confident about their choices."
The evenings are, above all, fun & entertaining with a relaxed atmosphere - no previous wine tasting experience is required. The best & most enjoyable way to learn about wine is comparing the tastes of different wines side-by-side.
