Testimonials

WSET Level 2

I signed up for the WSET Level 2 course with Fine Vintage not really knowing what to expect, and it turned out to be the most amazing experience I could have asked for. Lyn Farmer was an amazing instructor and prepared me so well for the exam that I passed with distinction. I can’t wait to continue with the program and take the WSET Level 3 course.
