The Guy behind the Wine Glasses

 Hey there, thanks for stopping by!

The School of Wine an independent Perth based wine education company, here to teach you everything you ever wanted to know about wine - sniffing it, swirling it, assessing it and drinking it.

 What is independent wine education and why is it important? Well, it means we're genuine. 

- We won't give you the "hard-sell" on wines we try (but if you want to know where to buy them, we will tell you!)

- We are unbiased, meaning we show wines with no agenda, but tell you the stories behind the wine/varietal/winemaker/region/making process of each wine we show

- We give a balanced viewpoint. If you come to one of our events and find a wine that you isn't to your liking, we will chat with you to explore a positively critical (and not cynical) review so you can figure out your palate for the future

The wonderful thing about wine is that its so subjective and there is no absolute right and no wrong answer! We want to help you learn how to select a bottle of wine for whatever the occasion. We design, write and host wine courses, masterclasses and corporate events in Western Australia.

Adam Collet

Adam officially joined us in Perth in 2014, moving from his home town of Fairfax, Virginia in the United States of America. He studied accounting at Virginia Tech but a working holiday in 2010 in NZ changed his whole life. While there he worked at The Mudbrick on Waiheke Island and quickly fell in love with wine, beaches, and living in this part of the world. He realized his life could never be the same after that so he spent the next four years making it his mission to learn about wine and return down under. Since then he has gone on to work at vineyards in NZ, Virginia, and Australia and has his WSET Level 3 degree. Outside of teaching for School of Wine, you'll find Adam is a Fine Wine Merchant at one of Australia's largest alcohol retail chains. When he's not pouring/drinking wine you can usually find him down at the boxing gym, swing dancing, or down at the beach.

    Best of all, we don't just talk wine, we attend various seminars and events to keep our palates educated and keep connected with our industry. Few of our favourite events are:
