"Easy to follow, very knowledgable topics. I feel more confident ordering and pairing wines with food, how they are made and which climates are best for which grapes."
– Kimberly, Introduction to Wine
"Very good. Even as a long time wine enthusiast I learned more about wine than I expected and will become more adventurous in my selections in future...overall a very approachable and useful course."
– Gary, Introduction to Wine
"As an introduction into wine or better put, a 'practical guide' this was excellent. Each module was well set out and focused on the practical elements that help to expand your knowledge, reinforce understanding and importantly, stimulate one's inquisitive self to further research those areas that were of particular interest. I found it interesting and easy to follow. I think it was good value for money."
– Peter, Introduction to Wine
"The course was well structured, easy to self-guide and worthwhile. There's a good range of relevant topics accompanied by short videos, text and images. Erin and Ned are professional and knowledgeable in their videos. The downloadable supplementary resources will be excellent for future reference. And there's various opportunities to put the theory into practice along the way. Overall, a very good online education program. Beneficial not only to beginners but the more experienced."
– Chad, Introduction to Wine
"I thought this was a great introduction to wine in general and didn't go over the top in terms of technical detail – gave enough to think about the wines you are drinking and simple pairing information – combining to provide more enjoyment of your personal wine journey."
– Richard, Introduction to Wine
