Wine Tastings in Belfast - Welcome to Belfast Wine School

Hello and a very warm welcome to the Belfast Wine School. We are an independent wine education company which hosts wine tastings and wine courses in Belfast and Northern Ireland. 

We offer a range of wine events including fun wine tastings, food and wine workshops and introductory courses. All events focus on enjoying wine in a relaxed and informal setting. No previous wine experience necessary.

Many of our tastings make GREAT GIFTS. Click here for our list of gift ideas from £25.

Our Courses

We run a variety of courses - open to everyone and anyone who enjoys wine and wants to learn a bit more about it - no previous wine tasting experience is necessary.

  • Introduction to Wine Tasting - An evening course, tasting 6 wines with a brief introduction to the basics of wine. These courses are run in BELFAST, and we'll cover - how it's made, how to taste it and how to find what you like, all with a few food matches.
  • Single Evening Tastings - An evening course, focused on a single subject such as region (e.g. Burgundy), country (e.g. New Zealand) or topic (e.g. Old World vs. New World). These courses are run in BELFAST.
  • Saturday Introduction to Wine Tasting Course - Includes a 2-course lunch, Champagne and 12 wines from around the world. These courses are run in BELFAST
  • 8-Week World Tour - Our flagship course. Explore the world of wine through 60 wines, covering all aspects of wine from how it is made to reading a label, and everything in between. These Courses are run in BELFAST.
