Nina Smith DipWSET -  Company Owner 

WSET Certified Educator

I would like to welcome you to The Wine Wise Company. I hope that you enjoy the website and hopefully undertake a course or tasting in the near future. 

My wine story began whilst working as an Air Stewardess with British Airways. I developed an interest in the wines we were serving and was able to study for the WSET Level 1 exam. This interest continued once I had left BA and I completed the WSET series of exams culminating in the completion of the Level 4 Diploma in November 2011. 

I am now at the helm of The Wine Wise Company and developing the business for the future.  I hold private courses and tastings in Sutton Coldfield as well as deliver in-house courses and tastings to several high profile organisations.  Some of these include the Royal Shakepeare Theatre,  Birmingham Hippodrome, Marstons, DeVere Hotels, Matthew Clark Wholesale Ltd, Withers and Rogers, Cundalls and Marks & Spencer.  

I am proud to be an Approved Program Provider for the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust).  The WSET operates a globally recognised system of wine and spirit qualifications and has a network of providers in over 60 countries.

My aim is to help others increase their enjoyment of wine and spirits through quality education.  Wine is a complex world and even just a little guidance can dramatically improve levels of confidence.   

We are always pleased to hear from you so please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have.

I have always been interested in wine since enjoying my first glass many years ago. However I knew very little about it and my drinking repertoire was very narrow. This all changed when I attended a wine appreciation course and became hooked on the subject of wine. Some years later and after much study, gaining qualifications and visiting vineyards in my beloved France and Italy, I launched The Wine Wise Company in 2004 in order to teach others this wonderful subject. I now spend my time in France running vineyard tours for sister company Vin en Vacances.

My love of wine is well established and it is now 12 years since I first started working in the wine trade. I am lucky enough to have visited many of the world’s most wonderful wine producing regions and to have tasted some amazing wines. I also lived in Chile for a time where I worked for a wonderful winery and this experience has helped me develop my huge passion for South American wines. Since obtaining the WSET Diploma and becoming a WSET Tutor, I enjoy teaching this fantastic subject to others.
