We are a growing wine & spirits education company based in Southampton and Winchester that offers its freelance employees competitive fees per event, flexible hours, and extremely enjoyable work conditions.
The Company: Hampshire Wine School is an independent wine & spirits educational company, not affiliated to any wine importers or merchants and as such pride ourselves on our honesty about the wines we choose to present and the non-pressure way of tutoring our tastings (no sales pitch!). We are known for the great care we take with clients and freelance employees alike, our level of professsional teaching, our extensive list of themed events, as well as the entertaining and social way we run our classes.
We are part of the Local Wine School Network, which is the worlds fastest-growing network of independent Wine Schools - teaching fun, accessible wine courses to consumers, the wine trade and corporate clients.
If you share our passion for wine as well as whisky and gin, are self-motivated, and committed to developing your own wine-teaching business, we will show you how to do the rest!
