  • Nicole

    I started Heath’s class as an enthusiast, but complete beginner, with zero wine industry experience or knowledge. I left with an obsession, a passion, the confidence, and the skill set to pursue a career in any facet of the wine industry I desire. In a non-intimidating class structure, I learned in one year what would have taken me decades to learn on my own.

  • Chris

    I decided to take the USWE ‘Wine Education & Sommelier Training’ class to expand my wine knowledge. It didn’t disappoint. After passing this course I decided to continue and take other types of wine certification testing (which I passed with the knowledge gained in this class). I am now a working sommelier and will always give credit to this course and Heath’s mentoring!

  • Vinnie

    The ‘Wine Education & Sommelier Training’ course is very informative and an excellent introduction to expanding your wine knowledge. Heath's structure is on point when teaching varietals and regions so you will never get too overwhelmed. Currently, I manage an Italian restaurant on the Strip and use a lot of the fundamentals I learned from this course in day-to- day operations.

  • Anthony

    This class gave me the knowledge and confidence to be a professional in the wine world. The tools I learned are the foundation of my career today. Heath has the ability to teach you information in a way that makes sense and is fun to learn at the same time. I highly recommend this class.
