Wine Styles Tasting Course
Taste the right wines while grasping fundamental concepts in wine. Interacting with wines while you learn is the key to making sense of basic wine concepts. This course allows you to practice at your own pace.
Wine 101: Madeline makes learning feel like a friend of yours at your home walking you through wine. I've gone through other classes and they felt was too snooty or just boring and monotone. This class was nothing like that. I can't wait to do the Napa Valley class and take the test. Never been so excited about learning before.- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ethan A. from United States
