This 8 Week Wine Course makes a great gift idea for any occasion and can be purchased as a gift voucher.

Course Fee Structure

Please Note: The course fee is £200. As a way of spreading the cost, we ask for £120 payment on booking and then £10 in cash each evening. A great value and a saving on booking each night separately (this works out at £25 per evening, usual cost if you booked on a single evening is £27.50 to £35 per evening).

What if I have to miss any evenings? Not a problem! You may either send a substitute, or pick up the missed session on a subsequent World Course, or obtain a refund voucher valid for any of our North London Wine School courses and tastings. However, we ask that you give us adequate notice if this is the case.
