Testimonials

WSET Level 2
I cannot say enough good things about Fine Vintage and their WSET course offerings. I have completed Level 2 and 3 and am currently working towards my Diploma. Their instructors are extremely knowledgeable, the content is comprehensive but delivered in an approachable manner, and the breadth and quality of wine is exceptional. I highly recommend Fine Vintage for both personal interest as well as those aspiring to a career in the beverage industry.

I chose Fine Vintage because they select top industry instructors who are relevant and relatable, the course work is well organized and clearly defined, the access to information is easy, and most importantly, those at Fine Vintage sincerely want to see you pass your course. Highly recommend!
