South West Wine School was founded by Jonathan and Hayley Reynolds to provide first rate wine education across the region. Hayley has spent the last 20 years associated with the wine industry and has her WSET diploma. Jonathan shares her passion and is also WSET qualified.

Whether a group of 10 or an office of 100, South West Wine School offers the perfect solution for a brilliant team building event which will be educational, fun and hugely sociable. We’ll bring the wine, the glasses and the knowledge and stay for as long as you wish at whatever time works with your busy schedule. Alternatively, if you think it best to escape the office, we’ll find a gorgeous venue for you such as the Kenton Park Estate and Vineyard to sit back and relax whilst tasting interesting wines from across the world.
