In wine there is truth
"In Vino Veritas"

Kind words from kind humans...

I wouldn’t be a success without hardworking students such as these fine humans…

I have more confidence in my workplace and enjoy drinking wine even more now!
I now feel more confident about wine and able to classify all the information in my mind. I'm pleased with how much I've learned in such a short period
[After taking a WSET with Joanne], I started drinking a lot of wine and I'm able to tell the differences between them to serve my guests better.
I now have more knowledge about grapes, terroir and winemaking processes and I'm confident to explain wine!
