  • We are wine and spirit lovers first; teachers and wine industry professionals thereafter.
  • Our instructors are professionally involved in the wine and spirits industry.
  • We are dedicated to sharing our knowledge of the incredible world of wine and spirits with others.
  • We are excited about our interactive and innovative teaching techniques that can help students pass wine exams.
