Fun and Entertaining Way to Learn About Wine

I took Robert's 6-week course and I am now so much more confident when it comes to wine. Not only do you learn a ton about wine regions, grape varietals, and general wine knowledge...you also get to taste some amazing wines with friendly people. Highly recommend Robert's courses to anyone interested in learning more about wine.

Uncorked a new world

It was a pleasure to participate in the Wine Appreciation Course. Before that wine was something that I either like or don't like and it was a lottery to order a fitting wine in a restaurant. Now I got hooked. The course uncorked a whole new world where all the labels and descriptions on a bottle or a menu make actually sense. I know better what to expect and I also know better what I like and why I like it and how I can ask for it in a restaurant or browse the shelves in a wine store. Many thanks to Robert and his passion for wine which contagious.

Learning a new world about wine through one of the best teachers

Taking this wine appreciation course did not help me appreciate wine more, but it opened up a whole new world that I better understand and enjoy. Robert is not only an incredible teacher - someone who is authentic and truly passionate about sharing his love for wine with others - but he has designed these courses to be just at the right depth of knowledge to truly "get it" and enjoy wine even more. THANK YOU to Robert for such a fun and superb experience! Looking forward to more.
