Welcome to Oxford Chelt 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 tasting & most interesting wines currently available.
Tastings are hosted by Nick Gay who has spent most of his career as an educator, teaching people about what fascinates and enthuses him. Before running the Wine School, he owned and ran a successful sightseeing tour company in Germany offering historic tours in English. Now, he has the incredible good luck to be sharing another of his passions – wine! And his extensive knowledge is complemented by holding the Advanced WSET Certificate, so you are in good hands.
The Wine Tastings and Wine Courses are, above all, fun, entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and usually 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.
Feel free to contact Nick on 01865 238042 or 07858 220119. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
