“Thank you and the team for running such a great course. We benefited greatly from your expertise and knowledge of wine and you were a patient and kind teacher.” Paul and Katrina Mc Gurgan, March 2018

 “I wanted to thank you for the recent Wine Essential’s course I attended. It was really enjoyable and I appreciated your vast knowledge and teaching. It is a good thing you are still an educator because you do have a gift.” Dell Lusick, March 2018

 “Thank you for the fantastic course, and all the effort you put into making it happen. Venue is excellent as well - it is great to benefit from the ramp up in the local scene, how wine shows and judging works - and of course the tastings! This week’s comparison of Margaret River Chardonnay and Petit Chablis was excellent - looking forward to next week!” David Anthony, October 2018
