Welcome to Belfast Wine School, an independent wine education company whose aim is to provide wine tasting for everyone! As we do not sell wine, we can show you where to buy the best wines locally and at the best prices. We work with local independent wine merchants as well as national merchants to bring you the best quality & most interesting wines currently available.
Most tastings will be hosted by Chief Wine Tutor, Seana Hackett, a WSET Diploma qualified enthusiast for all things food and wine. Seana first took an interest in wine spending part of her year abroad in the Rhone Valley in France. After graduating with a degree in Modern Languages and Linguistics, Seana worked for Eurotunnel in Manchester. Having moved back to Northern Ireland in 2001, she took up a post with Diageo where she began completing WSET quaifications and graduated with a level 4 diploma in 2011. Since then, she has worked with a few companies in Wine Sales, where her interest in Tastings and Wine Education began.
Feel free to contact Seana on 02890 504731 or 07810 482084 or alternatively via firstname.lastname@example.org
The Belfast Wine School Tastings and Wine Courses, are, above all, fun, entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and include visual aids and notes. Professional ISO tasting glasses are provided and no previous wine tasting experience is required. Our guests come by themselves, in couples or in larger groups and it is also a great way to meet others with the same interest in tasting and learning about wine.
Nationally, our group of wine schools are proud to have reached the finals for two of the most prestigious awards in the wine industry. Harpers Wine & Spirits magazine selected us as among the UK’s top 3 companies for Wine Education in 2013 and the International Wine Challenge (IWC) selected us as finalists for Wine Educator of the Year 2012.
The wine school family also run courses in more than 20 other locations - Edinburgh, Glasgow, York, Leeds, Hertfordshire, Manchester, Cambridge, Newcastle, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Chester, Liverpool, Lancashire, Brighton, Tunbridge Wells, Southampton, Winchester, Nottingham, Derby, West London and East London & the Thames Valley. We will continue to add locations as the network grows.
