About the Wine School
The Wine School is renowned for being the vanguard in truth-telling in the wine industry, and its unbeatable teaching staff.
The Certified Sommelier Instructors
The Wine School is about people. The people who come to our classes and the people who teach here. The school started with fun, smart folks who love wine, and that is who we remain. Not surprisingly, that's the kind of person who loves attending our classes.
If you want snobbery, you are in the wrong place. Here are the short biographies of a few of our instructors:
som·me·lier (sml-y, sôm-ly) n.
A restaurant staffer who orders and maintains the wines sold in the restaurant and usually has extensive knowledge about food and wine pairings.
[French, from Old French, officer in charge of provisions, pack-animal driver, alteration of *sommerier, from sommier, beast of burden, from Vulgar Latin *saumrius; see summer2.]
