The Texas Wine School Vision

The Texas Wine School is a fun, laid-back atmosphere to learn about wine from introductory to certification level, where the emphasis is always on the wine and not on the speaker.

About James King

James King

“Rare is the day that King, on appearances the hardest-working man in Houston wine, isn’t teaching a class or orchestrating a tasting through his Texas Wine School (, operating mostly out of French Country Wines. If you’re interested in Society of Wine Educators certification, he’s the guy to see”.
Dale Roberts, Houston Chronicle, The Houston experts you must meet, Jan 22/2014

“His perky, passionate personality adds to the enjoyment and entertainment of his courses ranging from beginner to advanced. This articulate Brit makes wine fun, the way it needs to be without the pomp and complexities that turn people off.”

– Ron Saikowski, Journalist – Greater Houston Weekly
