Testimonials

WSET LEVEL 1

Fine Vintage WSET 1 training was more than I expected. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and brought the education to life through sampling many different wines from a variety of regions while taking us on a tour of the basic fundamentals of wine. Whether you are a novice or starting your career in wine, I would highly recommend Fine Vintage, Ltd.


MEL EITEL – NEW YORK CITY
French Wine Scholar

I was always so confused by all the different wine regions, grapes, and labels in France but I love French wines. This course made sense of it all and taught me the about the most important wines and we tasted some amazing ones! I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in France and it is especially useful if you are about to do the WSET level 3.
