“I thoroughly enjoyed LAW school & feel that I’ve gained a better appreciation for wine.”
“It was challenging but I liked the explanation of every wine, from smell, taste, look. Very thorough.”
“Opened the door into an undstanding of wine & built my confidence to develop my palate & taste preference. Gave me the push I needed to persue a career I’ve always wanted in the wine industry.”
“Ian and his crew are very knowledgeable & make the process/class very enjoyable.”
“Absolutely adore the class, beyond my expectations.”

Think of LAW SCHOOL as a personal wine trainer - pushing you to do more than you would on your own!   Develop "wine muscles" "world wine competency" and walk proudly as a credentialed member of the wine society.  Highly recommended as a course of student for anyone in or getting into the wine industry.  No prior knowledge needed, many entry level Sommeliers have successfully completed this program and been very thankful for comprehensive approach that provides a strong foundation for all future educational endeavors.  


(Typically offered 4x's a year in  January, March, July and October)
