about us

Yes there is an 'us' - we're not just an online company without a face to be seen! We're passionate about wine and this is how Wine Unearthed was born.


Where did it all start?


Wine Unearthed was set up by Victoria & Adrian Bucknall. Having worked in Banking in London and then Sydney they discovered that their day jobs were getting in the way of their real passion - wine. Each week they held wine tastings for some of Sydney’s fantastic sommeliers and wine writers, every free weekend and holiday was spent visiting a new wine region…something had to give. So in 2003 they packed in their day jobs to immerse themselves fully in wine – spending 18 months travelling the world’s wine regions, meeting some of the worlds best winemakers and of course, tasting some great wines (along with climbing the odd volcano!). On arriving back in the UK, Wine Unearthed was born

IWC 'Wine Educator of the Year' WINNER


"It was a real honour to have been recognised by our peers in the Wine Industry for our accomplishments in Wine Education"

why choose wine unearthed?

Wine Unearthed is a leading provider of weekend wine education in the UK. Each year thousands of people are educated and entertained at one of our wine workshops. All workshops and events are structured so as to appeal to everyone, are un-stuffy, un-intimidating and fun. After all, wine is there to be enjoyed and so should learning about it - what other subject requires you to have a glass of wine in your hand as you learn!

Not only are all Wine Unearthed presenters knowledgeable, holding qualifications with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust as a minimum, they are also genuinely passionate about wine and love to share their enthusiasm with others. The subject of wine is vast, however a little knowledge goes a long way and the more you learn the more you’ll enjoy it. Whether you are choosing a bottle from your supermarket shelf or selecting a wine from a restaurant wine list, attending a Wine Unearthed event will improve your knowledge and confidence, so that you know your Malbec from your Merlot and your Burgundy from your Bordeaux.
