OXFORD CHELT WINE SCHOOL

Oxford Chelt Wine School believes that appreciation of wine is within everyone's reach - we hate the snobbery and pretence that surrounds much of the wine world, and want everyone to be able to expand their horizons and enjoy exploring the world of wine.

We teach people about wine by concentrating on the flavours and aromas of the wines. We focus on the taste profile of each wine explaining the characteristics of the grape variety, the climate, and the winemaking, and show you with maps and photos where they came from and how they are made. We explain why they taste like they do and ask and listen to what you think about the wines.

The evenings are, above all, fun & entertaining with a relaxed atmosphere - no previous wine tasting experience is required. The best & most enjoyable way to learn about wine is comparing the tastes of different wines side-by-side.

We also always focus on food & wine matches, and explain what type of foods would go with the chosen wines, and more importantly - why!

As we do not sell wine - we can show you where to buy the best wines locally and at the best prices. We work closely with local independent wine merchants and a wide source of suppliers to bring you the best tasting & most interesting wines they have to offer. At the end of a tasting, we always provide you with details as to where you can source the wines and at what price.

Our guests come by themselves, in couples, and in larger groups, everybody is welcome. It is also a great way to meet people with the same interest in tasting & learning about wine.
