Welcome - Inside the World of Wine

Join us in enjoying the wonderful diversity of wines in the world.

Have fun and at the same time learn:

• how to taste wines
• how wines are made
• how and why wines taste as they do
• how to assess their quality
• how to match a wine with the right food
• something new; gain the confidence to try something different from the wine list or the supermarket shelf

We offer a wide selection of courses and tasting events tailored to suit your budget and needs.


Dedans Vintners was formed by Tim Johnson, who has been interested in wine from as soon as he was legally able to imbibe. He studied for and obtained all the WSET qualifications, and claims the courses helped him retain his sanity whilst doing his day job!

He holds the WSET Diploma, is a Certified Educator, a member of the Association of Wine Educators, an International Wine Judge, and Master of Wine student. 


We look at at the world of wine from new and interesting directions.

Our events are characterised by novel and memorable themes which you won't find elsewhere, and which guarantee unique wine appreciation experiences.

Take a look at the Events page for details of our latest offerings.

Tim is interested in the history surrounding wine, how it has developed, and the role it has played in social history. He has long been interested in the more unusual wine producing areas of the world, what many now call "emerging" nations, but whose wines are remarkable achievements in themselves.

If you have a theme in mind, try him out; he is happy to rise to any challenge and talk on any aspect of wine.
