A know-it-all wine snob can ruin a wine experience by forcing the “right” agenda down your throat,
along with the “right” wine. ~ Wine Folly
I was working for a major wine merchant. Part of my job was to run tasting events ~ this was the part of it I loved.
But there just wasn't enough time for me to really share my love of wine with others. Then at a tasting event I had a "light bulb moment" A guest said "You should do this all the time-you obviously relish sharing your love and knowledge about wine".
The next day Northern Wine School was born. Within weeks of having the idea I had left my job and the school was my full time passion.
John hosted a wine tasting for a large group of hens. He was fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Good host and very patient with us all!Would definitely recommend. Very good value-thank you. Via tripadvisor.
Wide range of Manchester Wine Tastings & Manchester Wine Courses.

“Not to be missed”
Whether you live in Manchester or are visiting I can highly recommend a tasting led by John.I was part of a fourteen person group last night for an introduction into wine tasting.I have been lucky enough to to have taken wine tours in many countries and often struggle when back in the UK to know where to find medium priced wines using the knowledge I have learnt.Not so last night.I was in a party of four and it did not take long for the whole group to bond thanks to John and the knowledge he Imparted.I look forward to my next experience.

“An informed approach”
The wine tasting session was well prersented and prepared.I have been to several different wine events in the past and found this to be the best prepared of them all.The knowledge of our teacher was very impressive and always relevant.This was a good night out and we tasted wines in my budget range £6+ - no fussy expensive wines just good old Tesco, Aldi etc...

We hold our Manchester wine tastings and courses in the centre of the city. At the moment we use two major venues for our Manchester wine tasting courses. These are Manchester Hall and The Bridge Tavern, both on Bridge Street, just off Deansgate.
Many of our Discovery wine tastings are held at Manchester Hall and most other wine tasting events are now held at The Bridge Tavern.
You can enjoy a whole range of wine tastings with us:
Have a look at The All Courses Page to see what's available wine tasting in Manchester & around the city.
Manchester wine tasting events follow the same pattern as those in any other city. They give you the chance to sample a range of wines in the company of like minded people. You will be able to try far more wines than you could easily taste at home.
Some tastings are slightly more formal but usually relaxed and fun. You will probably be seated around a table and watch a presentation as you taste.
Other events ( usually those provided by wine merchants for example) are even less formal. You will be able to wander around and try wines provided by the seller.
Just wanted to say thanks for the wine tasting this evening! Great evening, and will definitely recommend it to people.
The short answer is no. Professional tasters do because they wouldn't be able to taste many wines at a time if they swallowed all of them. You are provided with spittoons at all of our wine tasting Manchester events. Whether you use them is entirely up to you. As you are advised not to drive, but to use public transport, then drinking and driving is not an issue.
Because the sense of smell is so important in your enjoyment of wine at our wine tasting events in Manchester this means:
Our Discovery Course is a great place to start your wine tasting journey. See more details on The Discovery Page ...
