The West of England Wine and Spirit Association committee is tasked with continuing the association’s 50 year legacy. We continue to offer the highest standard of WSET training locally in the south west, while continuing to develop exciting learning opportunities for all our members through wine tastings and trips.

The committee is made up by a range of professionals from the wine and spirits trade and passionate wine lovers alike. Meetings are held quarterly to discuss education, events and industry news. Our wine trips are also planned at the committee level.
