About Us

Welcome to Shropshire Wine School, an independent wine education company whose aim is to provide wine tasting for everyone!  As we do not sell wine, we can show you where to buy the best wines locally and at the best prices. We work with local independent wine merchants as well as national merchants to bring you the best quality & most interesting wines currently available.

Tastings are hosted by Chief Wine Tutor, Gary Carter, a WSET Diploma qualified enthusiast for all things food and wine. Gary has been a wine enthusiast for many years and booking holidays has for many years been a question of where has some interesting vineyards to visit, as his long-suffering family can testify!

Other than wine, Gary also enjoys real ale and believes Shropshire is very lucky to have so many great local breweries. Watch this space for beer tastings later in the year.

Gary's other passions are rock music and railways.  It's difficult to imagine how he can work wine tasting into either of these but who knows?

Feel free to contact Gary on 01743 624021 or 07411 652651 alternatively via info@shropshirewineschool.com


The Shropshire Wine School Tastings and Wine Courses, are, above all, fun, entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and include visual aids and notes. Professional ISO tasting glasses are provided and no previous wine tasting experience is required. Our guests come by themselves, in couples or in larger groups and it is also a great way to meet others with the same interest in tasting and learning about wine. 

Nationally, our group of wine schools are proud to have reached the finals for two of the most prestigious awards in the wine industry. Harpers Wine & Spirits magazine selected us as among the UK’s top 3 companies for Wine Education in 2013 and the International Wine Challenge (IWC) selected us as finalists for Wine Educator of the Year 2012.

The wine school family also run courses in more than 20 other locations - Edinburgh, Glasgow, York, Leeds, Hertfordshire, Manchester, Cambridge, Newcastle, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Chester, Liverpool, Lancashire, Brighton, Tunbridge Wells, Southampton, Winchester, Nottingham, Derby, West London and East London & the Thames Valley. We will continue to add locations as the network grows.
