I’ve taken wine courses with various providers over the years and can unequivocally say that Fine Vintage stands in a league of its own. The quality of wine alone sets the company apart but its real advantage is its instructors. Every FV instructor I’ve had has brought as much enthusiasm to the classroom as they’ve brought experience, drawing on both to bring the world of wine to life. You can’t get that kind of education from a textbook.

Canadian Wine Scholar

It was truly a pleasure and privilege to take several courses offered by Fine Vintage. The Canadian Wine Scholar course in particular was a catalyst for my viticultural career. It was brimming with information on wine regions from coast to coast and showed a magnificent variety of exceptional wines. The key ingredient for me was David Lawrason’s invaluable expertise, approachable style and passion for the content. I highly recommend it for novices and aficionados.
