The Academy Space

The Academy Space

Equipped and fitted-out to the very highest standards, no detail in the dedicated Academy instruction room has been overlooked. From the state-of-the-art audio/visual system and Riedel stemware to our custom-made tasting tables (built from barrels generously donated by leading Bordeaux châteaux), AWC Wine Academy is the premiere wine education centre in London. The result is a sleek, contemporary environment which tastefully combines modern equipment and furnishings with the tradition and elegance of the fine wine world.

For seated events, AWC Wine Academy is designed to comfortably accommodate up to 30 people at tasting tables. Each guest has the option of being provided with an individual tasting mat, glasses, spittoon, water, bread or crackers, and an accompanying booklet customised for the event.

Alternatively, open floor plan or standing events can also be held. For non-seated events, if requested, wines may be served in a 'walk around' style without any formal tasting stations.
