The Association regularly organises wine trips for its members and WSET students. Here you will find a list of the latest proposed trips that have been planned. Please make sure you are signed up to receive Association membership emails as this is where we let our members and students know about upcoming trips first.

Confirmed Wine Trips – Spain in March

We can now confirm details for this trip – the detailed itinerary is attached.

Cost £500 per person to include:

  • B&B in hotel for four nights on double occupancy basis.
  • Transport in Spain.
  • Meals and tastings as mentioned.
  • It does not include:
  • Flights (Please book your own.)
  • Insurance.
  • Any other meals.
  • Incidentals.

 There are still some places available on this trip. We would particularly welcome people with direct trade links as some of the bodegas we are visiting are looking for direct customers in Britain.
