Last chance for wine courses in 2016

WSET, Sensory, Canadian Wine Scholar, Business of Wine and Sommelier courses

2016 is almost in the history books. If you had planned on taking a wine course before Christmas, well, now’s your last chance.

We have a full schedule of WSET, Sensory, Canadian Wine Scholar, Business of Wine and Sommelier courses running in November and December in a dozen cities.

You could fly to Tuscany and take your WSET Level 3 with Philip Goodband MW at Antinori’s palazzo in Florence. Too far? You could pop down to Miami and take your Level 1 and 2 in the sunshine with Lyn Farmer. Want to catch a Bears game? Take your Level 2 with Fernando Beteta MS in Chicago. Prefer to sharpen your senses? We have Sensory courses running in Toronto and Calgary with the dynamic duo David Lawrason and David Munro. We’ve lots on offer and that’s just the start of it.

We are proud to be the only wine school in the world with 3 nominations for WSET International Educator of the Year plus an outright win. We spend lavishly on wine so you can sip on the best, and we take you on a vinous journey around the world. The full schedule is below or visit our site.

On behalf of all our fantastic instructors and our family, we wish you an excellent Fine Vintage experience!
