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.

Highly recommend!
