passionate about wine      passionate about education 

Welcome to the official website of The Wine Academy - New Zealand.  Based on Waiheke Island in Auckland and operating nationwide, we bring a fresh approach to wine education in New Zealand.  

With a focus on fun and collaboration, we aim to make all of our courses as practical and engaging as possible.

Whether you are just starting your journey into the world of wine and need some pointers, you are looking to get qualified or just want a good time with friends, we have courses and activities to suit everybody.

We are qualified to teach WSET qualifications at levels 1, 2 and 3 and with over 10 years experience working with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust we know what it takes to offer a fantastic course and first class wine education.

Our scheduled WSET courses currently run on Waiheke Island in Auckland.   We also offer in-house wine and service training available to the hospitality industry and we have a range of fun and competitive corporate entertainment options available.
