WSET Level 1

When I decided to begin my wine education journey Fine Vintage Ltd. was my first choice. James Cluer MW and his team provided a first class experience which propelled my love and curiosity for wine into a lifetime quest to further my knowledge. I would highly recommend the WSET Level 1 course with Fine Vintage to any student who desires to learn from outstanding teachers who inspire you with their wealth of knowledge while exposing you to a benchmark selection of quality wines.

WSET Level 2

I have taken WSET Level 2, 3, and am almost completed Level 4. I couldn’t be happier with the teaching that Fine Vintage provides and their commitment to our success. Lynn, James, and David’s teaching styles are all fun, informative, dynamic, and focused around creating a deeper understanding of the content rather than root memorization. I have confidently recommended Fine Vintage to several friends, families, and coworkers and all have had amazing experiences.

WSET level 3

Once again Fine Vintage did not disappoint in providing an exceptional Level 3 course in Vancouver British Columbia. David Munro is not only a wealth of knowledge but his passion for the art that is the world of wine shines through. I am happy to recommend him and Fine Vintage to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge.

WSET Diploma

The Diploma Course with Fine Vintage is extraordinary. As a student, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the best professionals the world of wine has to offer from winemakers to sommeliers and specialists. I recommend 10/10.
