TESTIMONIALS

CHELCIA PETERSEN

Having taken the first three levels of WSET as well as the Sensory Course and the French Wine Professional Course, I would highly recommend Fine Vintage courses to anyone looking to learn more about wine and expand their palate. The level of instruction is absolutely phenomenal and with their lively, upbeat approach to learning, the teachers make it so fun! Fine Vintage does not spare any expense on class examples either! You will taste some of the most delicious wines in your life! Regardless of the level, these are 5 star Wine Education Courses!
