Student Testimonial and Instructors
"My experience last year was very educational and, more importantly, so much fun. It taught me the skills needed to become a professional asset to a winery. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in a wine sales profession. It has amazing potential for all age groups interested in becoming part of this unique and growing industry in the Okanagan Valley." Danielle, Wine Sales Certificate
