    It has been a little over a month that I received the good news that I passed the WSET Level 2 exam with merit. I have looked at the letter and certificate every day since then! I have been in the wine/spirit business a long time and the WSET Level 2 certificate is my most important achievement to date.
    The course was very comprehensive, detailed and tailor-made for learning. The tastings and instructions were right on point. I have observed several other wine courses throughout the industry and I think Napa Valley Wine Academy’s WSET course is certainly one of the best in the wine/spirit business. I would like to thank Christian and Amy for putting up with me and assisting me throughout the program. I will continue to highly recommend Napa Valley Wine Academy to everyone who is interested in gaining a premium quality wine education.

    We (Epic Wines) use Christian and his team at Napa Valley Wine Academy to certify our sales reps with WSET Level 2 Certification. NVWA offers an easy to implement and effective solution to formal wine and spirits training. Christian knows what is important to wholesalers and suppliers and caters his offerings to meet the needs of “thirsty for knowledge” sales reps. Here at Epic we view NVWA as providing three key benefits:
    Continuing education and certification is a high priority for employees, especially with millennials.
    The more knowledgeable our sales reps are, the more effective their sales presentations will be = increased sales!
    Our supplier partners respect and appreciate that we make education a priority, and back it up with investing in certifications through Napa Valley Wine Academy.

    Thank you Christian! You and your team are our “partners in education”!

    Danielle B:

    Catherine and her team at the NVWA helped us organize 5 weeks of classes for 12 of our guest services and upper management team for the WSET level 2, and I must say, I’m utterly impressed! Our team thoroughly enjoyed the instructors who made learning the material so much fun. Everything ran smoothly from beginning to end. We were especially wowed by the caliber of educators. They each had a very unique and engaging style and presented the information and answered questions in a thoughtful and approachable manner. We would highly recommend NVWA to anyone in the industry looking to truly elevate the wine expertise of their direct sales and hospitality departments. We are coming away from this experience feeling energized and motivated to continue our pursuit of education.

    I attended the level 2 training class this past weekend, and I just want to say how impressed I was with everything.
    This class easily exceeded my expectations. I had a different instructor each day, and they both were engaging, entertaining, and just perfect in going over a subject that I was very green in. I can go into more detail, but I’ll save you the time.
    It’s been a day later and I still can’t stop singing the praise of my over all experience. Also, the assistant, Mary Ann, was just as great.
    The lunch was really impressive. Such a class act spread!
    I took this class to simply learn for a hobby. I’m not in the industry, nor do I plan to. And, I wasn’t intimidated or overwhelmed.
    Anyway, I really appreciate the experience you provided for me. Honestly I would do it all again. Maybe a level 3 is in the future

    I live in the Napa Valley and took this as a learning/ hobby experience (amidst all the wine business people). As a graduate professor, I’m very impressed by the teaching and overall experience of instructors. Passed the exam and decided to do the Harvest Bootcamp Level 3 next! NVWA Rocks!
