Wine, of course!  (It's the right choice!)

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the pages for The Northern England Wine Tasting School, based  in the Eden Valley, Penrith; at the edge of  the Lake District. 
This is the right place to be if you are interested in wine, looking for wine tastings, wine courses and events, wine holidays and wine education! 
For tips on wine and food pairings, check out the 'Thought for Food' page. 
If a 'tailor-made' Corporate or Private wine tasting, is what you are looking for, or you are the speaker-finder for your club or social group, and you would like me to present a tutored wine tasting, please get in touch.  My contact details are below.

I am always available for club presentations and tutored wine tasting events, private and corporate, but I also run wine courses at the Westmorland Hotel, Orton; just 2 minutes from the Westmorland Services, near Tebay on the M6 motorway.

See below and also the Wine Weekends page

Cumbria Wine Weekends,

These consists of two nights bed and breakfast, and two tutored wine tasting sessions; one on Friday night from 7.00pm - 9.00pm, with a buffet supper, and one on Saturday 5.00pm - 7.00pm, followed by a gourmet 5 course dinner at 7.30pm. An excellent way to spend some time learning about wine, while enjoying a Lake District week-end! 
Comfortable accommodation in a scenic location at the award-winning *** Westmorland Hotel; excellent food, and free time for walking or sightseeing, on Saturday and Sunday.


The Westmorland Hotel***,  is very conveniently situated just off the M6 - two minutes from Tebay Services, half way between Kendal and Penrith.

The whole of Cumbria, Cheshire, Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland, Yorkshire, and south Scotland are all within easy reach.
If you are interested in arranging a Corporate or Private Wine tastings, there is more information about those on the following pages, too. 
Very topical at present, are private celebration wine tastings in Cumbria, particularly in Lake District holiday cottages. Mostly, these are part of Hen Party residential weekends, but some are family and friends get-togethers, birthday party celebration weekends, or anniversary or retirement celebrations. It goes without saying wine and celebrations go together and the Lake District is an unrivalled destination for an enjoyable break in fabulous surroundings. It's the perfect formula for a memorable event.  (There seem to be no shortage of holiday properties catering for up to 20 people and more!)

I've been tutoring wine tastings, running wine courses, private and corporate wine tastings and events, and vineyard holidays since 1993. I'm the Honorary Life-President for The Wine Appreciation Society of Penrith which I helped to set up as Founder-Chairman in 1994 with 18 members. Currently, there are over 90 members!

Wine Holidays. Also, on these pages you will find details of 9 day, Vineyard Holidays Tours in France, by coach and overnight ferry, from Cumbria, UK. These holidays are arranged specifically for groups, but sometimes there are a few spare places available.

Wine Presentations for Wine Appreciation Societies :: Any themes or topics by arrangement.
