TESTIMONIALS

JAMES FRANEY

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.

CHRIS KIRKHAM

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.

HEATHER LUING

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.

Fine Vintage is dedicated to providing excellence in the classroom. The instructors are well-educated and passionate about wine which inspired me. The wines in class are high quality and allowed me to truly understand and learn about the varietal/blend/region being taught. Level 2 is a wonderful foundation to build knowledge in the world of wine. I highly recommend Fine Vintage to everyone that asks.
