Kind Words from Kind Humans

I wouldn’t be a success without these fine humans…

Joanne is amazing! She overprepared us for our exam. The online practice quizzes were so helpful for studying.

[Our private wine tasting with Joanne] was amazing. It made us even more passionate towards wine.
Connor Doyle
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and are STILL talking about it! Joanne was very personable and we loved our tasting of Napa cabs we wouldn't have known to try.
