London Wine Tasting


A very warm welcome to North London Wine School! We are a local, independent wine education school who specialise in fun and informal wine tasting in London and also run professional wine courses from WSET.

We love our wine (cheese, Champagne and Spirits!), and we know that there are lots of you out there who share our passion, so we have a huge range of wine tasting experiences and courses designed to suit all tastes and interests.

Fancy a try? Why not take a look at our events page to see what we have coming up?

Wine Tasting

Our wine tasting evenings and evening wine courses are open to everyone and make for a fantastic and fun gift or experience. Do you have no previous wine experience? Don't worry, we take the snob out of wine and focus on learning about different wines in a fun, relaxed and informal environment. On the evenings you will:

  • Learn about wine in a friendly and social environment
  • Taste a wide range of wines side by side so that you can taste the difference
  • Receive impartial advice on other wines you might like to try
  • Learn how to pair wine with food

If you already know what wine you like, but want to find and learn more, then our courses show you how you can pick new wines from restaurant wine lists and supermarket shelves with confidence. It's all about squeezing a drop more enjoyment out of your wine drinking!

As we are not affiliated to any wine merchants or retailers, we can offer unbiased, honest and independent advice on your wine needs. All our tastings & courses are also available as gift vouchers.

WSET Courses


If you're interested in something more formal you may be interested in courses from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). WSET have been providing education for wine professionals since 1989, and their qualifications are recognised the world over.

As a WSET Approved Program Provider we run WSET Level 1 and WSET Level 2 courses. These can be conducted as face-to-face, tutor-led classes at our school in Camden, or alternatively taken online with self- study and access to an online WSET tutor, with the final exam taken in Camden. For more information, take a look at the course details pages.

Private Events

In addition to our regular events and courses, we can put together the perfect, bespoke private wine tasting experience for you. Whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, hen party, corporate event, or even as part of your office Christmas party, we can work with you to deliver a fun, personalized and informative event for you. Please get in touch and we'll be happy to discuss the options that are right for you.

A total wine novice, I have taken two classes with Beth at the North London Wine School, and found the experience to be welcoming, fun, informative, and enlightening. I strongly recommend NLWS to anybody -- whether you are new to wine, or just want to expand your existing knowledge. Thank you Beth!

Brilliant teacher, experience and such good value for money

Beth was fantastic, and the wine tasting is both informative and fun! We did the 8 week around the world wine tasting course, but this would also be a brilliant thing to do if you are in London and simply can only drop in. We met some brilliant people too who we are still in touch with. It is very relaxed and there is plenty of delicious wine to go around. Highly recommend.


5 Star ReviewLearn about wine in a fun environment

 I've just completed an eight week course, tasting over 50 wines from all over the world in every imaginable style. At the end of the course I have learned to appreciate aspects of wine that I hadn't thought about before. I have a far greater knowledge of wine - how it's made, why wines can taste so differently, and why some wines are better than others. Most of all, I now feel more confident about assessing a wine and articulating what I feel about it. What makes this course, though, is Heidi's fun, irrepressible style of tutoring - the perfect combination of teaching and having fun. Will be back for more. November 2017

5 Star Review A warm welcome with plenty of wine!                      

 I have completed the 8 week Introduction and a couple of individual sessions. Beth is a great tutor, very welcoming and knowledgable, and the evenings are great fun in a relaxed environment. It's been a nice way to meet people, and not in the least bit intimidating  - I've learnt so much, I've even found some white wines I actually like - which I didn't think was possible! All in all a great experience, I've missed the Thursday night tastings since the course finished, so no doubt I will find a reason to go back for more! November 2018

Company Wine Tasting Event
5 Star Review Heidi is a first class wine tasting host. Quite simply if you are looking to hold a wine tasting event, then don't waste your time searching elsewhere, just book Heidi. The event was professional, fun and very informative with clients and guests loving the event. No surprise that the guests took their time leaving the room at the end as Heidi has the gift of getting everyone involved and talking to each other with the use of carefully planned activities. Heidi herself is also very easy to get on with. The venue and its location was also ideal and was accessible to all. I can't speak more highly of Heidi and a big thank you for this. Looking to put another date in the diary soon. Furthermore it helps when your host enjoys their subject matter, which in this case is wine - Heidi definitely does. August 2017

Google 5 Star Review A relaxed and very pleasant way to learn more about wine, and start to develop my ability to describe what I'm tasting. Heidi gets the balance right between informing and entertaining, and her flexibility regarding attendance and substitutions made it easy to fit the course into a busy schedule. And she's almost managed to convince me to drink white wine occasionally even when it isn't bubbly. November 2017

Google 5 Star Review I just finished the 8 week wine tasting course. For a complete novice it was a great way to get started on an education in wine. In addition to being incredibly educational about the whole wine-making and wine-drinking processes, it was just plain old fun! Heidi was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining, would definitely recommend! November 2017


Google 5 Star Review Have attended individual classes and also a corporate event here. Great fun, very informative and suitable for all levels. Interesting selection of wine provided - outside of the traditional varieties you'll get some nice surprises along the way. Heidi makes everyone feel welcome and relaxed - it's not stuffy or overly academic, but you'll always walk away feeling more knowledgeable. I would highly recommend! July 2017
