“I loved that each class was interactive & involved everyone with regular discussion and activities. The content was interesting, delivered clearly, with a personal approach. I especially enjoyed the experience of tasting different wines side by side. Being in the hospitality industry I immediately saw the value when returning back to work with improved wine knowledge and skills.”
