For the Off-Trade

Our network provides World-Class wine education and tasting events from 25 regional centres across the UK.  We design and deliver a full range of wine courses from bespoke 1-day 'Introduction to Wine' up to WSET Level 3, and specialised Masterclasses.

Do you run an independent wine merchant?

Do you sell wine directly to the UK consumer?

Do you work for a multiple retailer?

Then its worth listening to Ian Harris, WSET Chief Executive, talk about the WSET, who they are, how they are reaching out to the consumer, and why he thinks it is so important to invest in educating your front-line staff.

Hal Wilson, MD of Cambridge Wine Merchants, is one of the UKs most successful award-winning independent wine merchants. Here he talks about how his 'super-educated' & motivated staff engage with customers & make wine accessible and open to everyone.

Local Wine School provides professional wine education to the wine trade at WSET-Approved centres across the UK.

We have designed & delivered bespoke wine training courses to off-trade clients including Marks & Spencer & Wine Rack.

We have also delivered WSET training to on-trade customers such as Hotel du Vin, distributors such as PLB group, as well as Brands such as Gonzalez-Byass & Concha Y Toro.

Out tutors also regularly act as Brand Ambassadors for Champagne Ruinart, and conduct frequent staff-training and in-store tastings for Marks & Spencer.
