Raisin Wine School

Our inaugural one-​day Wine Tasting Course will take place on Thursday 21 May at Gascoyne Place.

This fun, informal but highly informative course starts at 11am and finishes at 4.30pm, during which time attendees will be introduced to 12 fabulous South American wines courtesy of the dynamic, charismatic Raisin Wine head honcho himself, Colin “Mr Malbec” Bell. In a bid to keep everybody properly nourished as they slurp and tipple, a scrumptious 2-​course lunch will be served at the appropriate hour… and there are plenty of sofas to, erm, “relax” on in the downstairs lounge when we all graduate at the end of the session. But be warned: space is strictly limited (12 places only), so therefore early booking is essential. The cost is just £75pp; call 01225 422577 or email Info@​raisinwine.​co.​uk to guarantee your place at the front of the class.

The Raisin Wine school is run by Colin Bell, named Wine Magazine” Sommelier of the Year 20042005.

We offer a wide range of educational programmes from a 1 day workshop to the more rewarding 6 week foundation course.

Our goal is to make wine education fun and exciting in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. By the end of a session you will have learnt a new life skill and the passion for wines from around the globe.

Raisin wine is an independent wine and spirit merchant here in the centre of Bath. We stock a wide and varied range of wines from around the world. All of our wines have been tried and tested by ourselves to ensure that the quality of the wine, style of the wine and vintage represents both value for money and also meet our standards.

Our wines change regularly as we like to keep things fresh and exciting here at Raisin Wine. Vintages vary from year to year so if we do not think that a particular wine meets our standards we will source the very best replacement from that region.
