Wine Tasting Leeds, York, Sheffield and Harrogate at Yorkshire Wine School

A very warm welcome to Yorkshire Wine School. We are a local, independent wine education company which specialises in hosting wine tastings and wine courses in Leeds, York, Harrogate and now also our NEW venue in Sheffield. Our courses are open to everyone and anyone; no previous wine tasting experience is necessary. Our wine courses and wine tastings focus on learning about wine in a relaxed and informal environment.

  • Learn about wine in a friendly and social environment
  • Taste a wide range of wines side by side so that you can taste the difference
  • Receive impartial advice on other wines you might like to try
  • Learn how to match wine with food

If you know what wine you like, but want to find about just a little more about why, then our courses show you how you can pick new wines from restaurant wine lists and supermarket shelves with confidence. It's all about squeezing a drop more enjoyment out of your wine drinking! We are not affiliated to any wine sellers: which means we can source our wine wherever we please, from a plethora of local merchants, supermarkets or national wine specialists, and offer you impartial recommendations and advice. We will not try and sell you wine, we specialise in having a great time tasting wine!       

We are really excited to be bringing our fun, friendly and informal wine events to the stunning Sheffield Tap in 2016- Click Here to see more details.

Our Tastings and Courses

 

 

 

Venue, Times & Accessibility

Our Leeds wine tastings and courses are held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, The Headrow (LS1 8TL), close to the financial district of central Leeds. The White Rose Suite, a beautiful, wood-panelled, private meeting space near the top of the hotel, usually provides an atmospheric backdrop to our classes (please note, due to differing hotel availability other rooms are used from time to time). From Leeds train station simply walk north up Park Row and you will find the Radisson Blu on the junction with The Headrow, within The Light complex. The tastings run from 7pm to 9pm for the evening courses and from 11am to 4pm for our Saturday courses.

Our venue in York is the elegant Hotel du Vin (YO24 1AX) on The Mount; from here we regularly run our popular Saturday courses, (11 am-4 pm) which includes a two course lunch at the hotel's award winning bistro and a glass of Champagne on arrival. This course makes a really special present and is available as a gift voucher- perfect for the wine lover in your life! We now also host a range of midweek evening courses in York including our popular 8 week Introductory World of Wine course. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from the train station and easily accessible from the historic city centre of York, limited parking is available, for free, in the hotel car park.
