These day-long intensive workshops were developed by Master Sommelier Tim Gaiser and Napa Valley Wine Academy. The goal of each 6-hour session is aimed at helping waitstaff, bartenders, F&B managers, wine buyers, winery tasting room staff and anyone else working in the food and wine industry to hone their tasting and service skills, as well as better prepare those interested in pursuing sommelier certification exams such as Society of Wine Educators and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust examinations.

    Tim is a great teacher.
    Do not hesitate to ask for the time off because this class helped me achieve my CS in March!
