"Life is too short to drink bad wine"
Kind words from kind humans...
I wouldn’t be a success without hardworking students such as these fine humans…
I really loved pairing the food with wine with food!
I was surprised by the tastings. I didn't think we'd be tasting as much as we did.
Tasting the wines is huge! The accessibility and availability of the instructor [is an added benefit.] And hearing from other students about the wine scene in Whistler!
I'd highly reccommend Joanne! Incredibly knowledgable, engaging and very passionate which made it super fun. Also, she absolutely wants you to succeed!
MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Who am I? Think zen master meets Dionysus the Greek god of grape harvests, winemaking, religious ecstasy and ritual madness. As a metaphorical flame thrower, I'll break down students’ barriers to learning. My classes have 2 rules; No oenophobes allowed and no prisoners taken.Joanne DiGesoCreator: SommWine, Approved Program Provider for WSET
