The New Zealand School of Wines and Spirits (NZSWS) was established in 2006 by Jane Skilton MW. NZ's leading provider of Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) courses and the only WSET-approved school to be owned and operated by a Master of Wine. NZSWS has highly qualified tutors, and either Masters deliver all its courses of Wine or WSET Diploma Level 4 graduates. With their extensive knowledge of the world of wine, NZSWS's tutors ensure that all students have the best possible learning experience.
NZSWS has taught winemakers, viticulturists, cellar door staff, marketers, restaurant owners, bar staff, sommeliers, winery owners, and many enthusiastic consumers in the last fourteen years. Although its head office is in Auckland, NZSWS is committed to supporting students in the regions. Based in Auckland, Wellington, and Blenheim, its tutors travel extensively to deliver WSET courses across New Zealand.
