“I was working for a major wine merchant. Part of my job was to run tasting events ~ this was the part of it I loved. But there just wasn’t enough time for me to really share my love of wine with others. Then at a tasting event, I had a ‘light bulb moment’: a guest said “You should do this all the time-you obviously relish sharing your love and knowledge about wine”. The next day Northern Wine School was born. Within weeks of having the idea, I had left my job and the school was my full-time passion” – John Callow
