TESTIMONIALS

WSET LEVEL 2

I have taken WSET Level 2, 3, and am almost completed Level 4. I couldn’t be happier with the teaching that Fine Vintage provides and their commitment to our success. Lynn, James, and David’s teaching styles are all fun, informative, dynamic, and focused around creating a deeper understanding of the content rather than root memorization. I have confidently recommended Fine Vintage to several friends, families, and coworkers and all have had amazing experiences.


JAMES FRANEY – CALGARY
WSET LEVEL 3

Level 3 has given me the confidence to better assess quality and origin when tasting wine. Being able to deduce so much about a wine through my nose and palate is rewarding and useful when working as an industry professional.


DANIELLE VACHA – CALGARY
SENSORY COURSE

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!


CHELCIA PETERSEN – CALGARY
WSET LEVEL 3

Level Three of the WSET program was certainly challenging but also incredibly engaging and rewarding. I learned so much from this program and am excited to move on to the Diploma level with Fine Vintage next year.
