Edinburgh Wine School


About Edinburgh Wine School

My name is Maggy Smith and I run the Edinburgh Wine School an approved programme provider for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. The Wine School is also a member of the prestigious Association of Wine Educators dedicated to improving wine education. I am completely devoted and passionate about wine education being enjoyable and fun. Each year I run a wine tasting school during the fringe called Wine in the City (in the City Chambers) which received a 5 star review from the press last year. People who are interested in taking the subject a little further come along to my Saturday Wine School which runs once a month. I am on the committee of the Scottish Wine Society which meets up once a month in the City Centre. I run corporate events and WSET courses and am very involved in raising money for charity with wine tasting events. I speak Spanish and I am an Official Sherry Educator and a certified Spanish Wine Educator. When I am not teaching wine appreciation I enjoy hill walking, cooking, and eating out with friends and family. I have 3 grown up children who live in Edinburgh and China. I am a member of St. Margaret's Guild which is a unique guild of "Margarets" who look after St. Margaret's Chapel (the oldest building in Edinburgh) in Edinburgh Castle. Our patron is The Princess Royal.

I am very approachable so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. My personal email is: maggysmi@blueyonder.co.uk

We look forward to welcoming you to the City Chambers this year. If you would like to view a wine tasting on YouTube then please view the video below.
