    Thank you, Christian, and to Gence, for a fantastic day on Saturday. I really enjoyed it, and found the presentation and discussion fascinating. I am looking forward to continuing my education with the Napa Valley Wine Academy!

    Chuck M:

    The class, materials, and coursework are professional. Our instructor, Shelley, was knowledgeable and made the WSET 1 wine class informative, educational and fun! I enjoyed the historical background of wines, old vs new world, the different types of wines, tasting the wines (my favorite) and of course pairing wines with food. Overall a great class, learned so much in one day and I am already looking at the schedule for offering dates for WSET 2 and 3 courses. Keep up the great work!

    Dr. Dale A:

    I’ve been drinking and enjoying wine for over 20 years but really knew very little about wine. The WSET level one course gave insight into why I liked certain wines, helped make sense of the various flavors and aromas associated with different grapes and left me thirsting to learn more. I can’t wait to take the WSET Level 2 course!
