Wine Tasting and Courses Milton Keynes & Bedfordshire

Hello and a very warm welcome to the Milton Keynes Wine School. We are an independent wine education company which hosts wine tastings and wine courses in and around Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire.

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 Milton Keynes, 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.
  • Premium Gin Tastings - An evening course. Discover what makes craft gins unique, how they are made  and how they taste
  • 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). 
  • Saturday Introduction to Wine Tasting Course - Includes a 2-course lunch, Champagne and 12 wines from around the world.
  • 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.
