Evening Tastings from £25

Our One Evening Wine Tastings provide the opportunity to try a tasting with no previous experience. It's also a great way to meet people who share your enjoyment of wine. The types of evenings available is varied and always changing, from Introductory Courses to Fine Wine Events - with plenty to choose from there is always something new to try. 

At the Hampshire Wine School, we teach - not only about wine - but also about sparkling wine, champagne, port, beer, whisky, gin and cocktails! We also specialise in food & wine pairing tastings, where you can learn to match all types of food with their perfect wine!

Your tutor, Cecile Bergart, is a published Champagne and Wine Educator, a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine, for Channel 4 'Superscrimpers', a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent, as well as being an approved staff educator for Marks and Spencer. She used to train the food & beverage staff at both Claridge's and The Dorchester, and is now a judge at the International 'Glass of Bubbly' Competition. Trust us when we say that you will be in good hands! "I was incredibly impressed by how much I learned, but also how enjoyable and interesting you made the whole experience. My family and I often still mention you when we’re sharing a bottle of wine over dinner and we start sentences with “Cecile told us…” so firstly thank you for such a wonderful day and providing knowledge that has stuck with us and improved our understanding and appreciation of wine." (Wendy B)
