We Train

Our Wine School is a centre of excellence for wine and spirits training: year on year we put through more candidates than any other supplier in Scotland and we have twice been finalists in the Wine & Spirit Education Trust’s (WSET) global Educator of the Year award.


We run regular WSET Level 1, 2 and 3 programmes in addition to our online FLOW modules, which provide a good foundation for newcomers to the trade.
