Welcome to South London 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 tasting & most interesting wines currently available.
Julia Lambeth - Owner and Head Tutor
Tastings are hosted by Julia Lambeth who has spent most of her career in the wine trade as a retail manager, learning and then teaching people about the world of wine. Now, she has the incredible good luck to be sharing her passions with a wider audience! And her extensive knowledge is complemented by holding the WSET Diploma Certificate, so you are in good hands. With a passion for all things wine as well as beer, spirits and sake, there is always going to be a varied list of events available.
Mahima Macchione - Tutor
Mahima is a relatively new addition to South London Wine School but has been a part of the Local Wine School fmaily for some time as she completed her WSET training with us. WSET certified, Mahima's love for wine has led her to leave a career in advertising behind to devote her time to learning and sharing her knowledge with other. She is always attending tastings, masterclasses and wine tours in a constant bid to discover her new favourites. She has keen interest in fine and unsual wines and loves introducing people to new and exciting wines, expanding their horizons and delighting their palates!
The Wine Tastings and Wine Courses are, above all, fun, entertaining and set in a relaxed atmosphere. They are seated, and tutored, and usually 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.
Feel free to contact Julia on 0208 787 5395 or 07866 787508. Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
