“I greatly enjoyed and highly recommend The Spirited Grape to anyone seeking to develop and expand their wine knowledge and experience. The Spirited Grape provides a comfortable, undistracted environment. Instructor Brenda is knowledgeable, approachable and relays the material in a way that is easy to understand. I would not hesitate to return to advance through more certifications here.

“I took the WSET Level 2 in Wines at the Spirited Grape in April/May of 2019.  The class was fascinating and Brenda was an excellent teacher with amazing knowledge about wine.  Studying wine is so interesting because it involves geography, geology, climate, topography, microbiology, chemistry, history and more.  We covered all these aspects in class.  Plus we got to sample about 18 different wines in each class, giving us the opportunity to apply everything we learned which helped me to remember Brenda’s teaching pearls.  It has been a long time since I sat in a classroom for 7 hours a day, but the time seemed to fly by!  I highly recommend this class.”

“The course was a lot of fun and Brenda was an awesome instructor. You learn a lot, but it does not feel like a test prep, just a fun activity!”
