Welcome to wine school

Entertaining wine tasting events throughout Cheshire

Chester · Alderley Edge · Knutsford · Macclesfield

‘Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine’ · Joan Collins DBE

We are proud to be widely considered the County’s foremost authority on wine tasting and wine knowledge with a wealth of expertise in the industry that spans more than a quarter of a century.


The Wine School of Cheshire was created by Cheshire wine writer and presenter, Richard J Smith. Richard regularly writes for The Taster Magazine and recently appeared at Three Wine Men in Manchester alongside TV wine legends Oz Clarke, Olly Smith and Tim Atkin MW. Richard has recently featured in Cheshire Life Magazine and The Daily Mail and you’ll meet him at every wine tasting event we host. (find out more about Richard and our team here)


We host our wine tastings at premium venues throughout Cheshire including Restaurant 1539 at Chester Racecourse and The Chester Grosvenor, the leading hotel in our region with Michelin star cooking from Executive Chef Simon Radley. In Alderley Edge and Knutsford join us in The Tasting Room within Corks Out Wines or you can join us in Macclesfield at the iconic Arighi Bianchi store so there’s a wine tasting on your doorstep, wherever you are in the county!


Our comprehensive schedule of wine tasting events are timetabled for wine aficionados and novices alike, all of whom can enjoy themselves at every event which will completely demystify all that goes into making a good bottle of wine. You can learn what all the swirling and sniffing tells you about – and pose your questions to our experts – in an environment which is as relaxed and informal as a dinner party with great friends. Depending on which event you choose to attend, you can enjoy an exclusive evening out with canapés or a more intimate Saturday afternoon with a four course lunch to enjoy wine and food pairing at its best.


You’ll discover some amazing wines and pick up some fun facts along the way: we do not sell wine therefore you can rest assured that we are providing the best advice without any pressure for you to buy afterwards. We only select quality wines from premium retailers that we know and respect for you to enjoy at our events.


The Wine School of Cheshire are proud to include Marks and Spencer, ExxonMobil, Hartey Wealth Management, Airbus, Azure Collection, Molton Brown and many other organisations as our corporate clients. Find out more about how we can help with your corporate entertaining here.
