22 Old Queen Street, London SW1H 9HP



We are delighted to announce that The Spectator Wine School’s eight week autumn term will start at 6.30pm on Wednesday 25 September in our boardroom at 22 Old Queen Street.

Drawing on the unrivalled expertise of our merchant partners (namely Corney & Barrow, FromVineyardsDirect, Mr Wheeler, Private Cellar and Yapp Bros) who will take turns to host the classes, we will begin with an introduction to wine, how it’s made and how to taste it and then, over successive Wednesdays, will look at all the major grape varieties and how and why they taste the way they do in their various major regions.

Each class will last two hours (6.30 p.m.-8.30 p.m.) and eight wines will be tasted at each session.
