We are an independent wine education company running fun and informal Wine Tastings and Wine Courses in Oxford and Cheltenham - no previous experience required:

  • taste and learn in a relaxed setting
  • improve your knowledge and broaden your horizons
  • boost your confidence buying wine 

Gift Vouchers make ideal presents! Buy an open gift voucher (recipient chooses date) or book a specific event then email us for a voucher.

Use the menu to look at our evening tastings in Oxford and Cheltenham; for a weekend event, join a Saturday Wine Tasting day (incl. lunch & Champagne) - at Arbequina in Oxford and at Hotel du Vin in Cheltenham.

FOR Private Groups: we are happy to travel to other locations in Oxon and Glos for wine tastings for all types of groups: for companies or private parties (eg birthday, hen do, stag parties, anniversary, etc)

What makes us different?

  • We’re independent, meaning we are not tied to any wine supplier, letting us pick the best best value wines from local merchants and national online suppliers
  • We offer single evenings or structured courses if you want to learn more; for example, join us on our next World of Wine course, 8 evenings over 8 weeks course, an in-depth tour over five continents, tasting more than 50 wines along the way! NEXT 8 Week Course starts in September in Oxford and Cheltenham.  To quote a client on a recent World of Wine...

  • We are an Approved Programme Provider for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), offering daytime Level 1 courses in Oxford; Level 2 courses in both Oxford and Cheltenham; and Level 3 courses in Oxford

Venues and Times

Oxford Chelt Wine School uses venues in the heart of both Oxford and Cheltenham, all easy to reach (we can also offer tastings in central Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire in other private venues as well as at your own home!).

All evening tastings start at 7pm and end at 9pm; Saturday tastings start at 11am and end at ca. 4pm.

In Oxford, evening tastings take place at The Oxford English Centre on the Banbury Road, about a 10 min bus ride from Oxford City Centre (diagonally opposite Gee's Restaurant). Our Saturday tastings take place at Arbequina on the Cowley Road, which is walking distance from the city centre. For full details on both locations, please see our Venues page.

In Cheltenham, we have two venues:

Evening tastings take place at The Isbourne, in an elegant Regency terrace at 3 Wolseley Terrace, GL50 1TH - just off the Oriel Road close to the Town Hall and the Rodney Road car park...and Saturday tasting days take place at Hotel du Vin, Parabola Road. For more details, go to our Venues page.
