    I just completed your 4-day CSW course, Brenda was our instructor and did a fantastic job of taking us on a wonderful wine journey around the world. What I loved most was learning the geography and heritage of wine, Old and New World. This is a great preparatory course for the exam. I know what areas I need to focus on prior to taking the exam. The wines we tasted were delicious, great selections and the daily lunch provided was awesome! They have a great caterer. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Cheers!
