Great Classes Great Instructors

I just finished the instruction portion of the CORE class and I wanted to write a review to share my experience. To start, Keith and Alana are just awesome! Unassuming, caring, willing to teach and explain things, even to those of us just starting out! If you’ve never had formal wine education before, this is where to start. If you already “know” a lot about wine, FORGET EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW and take a class and actually learn something! The entire experience was wonderful but also extremely challenging. The coursework both in class and online is in depth and pretty intense, but it’s explained and broken down into understandable segments. I truly enjoyed each and every class and look forward to more classes in the future!

Craft Beer 101

Thoroughly enjoyed this class! I appreciated that you didn’t pick beers readily available and we tried “new” beers. Learned many cool things about the science of beer making! Would have loved some pretzels or cheese ... you know, to cleanse the palate a little LOL! Would definitely recommend this class to friends!! Thanks for a great Friday night!

Craft Beer 101 Review

It was a cool experience, I learned a lot of interesting bits of information that I never even thought about, and tried some beers that I would have never thought to try. Keith added humor to the class too which made it more enjoyable.

Whiskey and Cocktail class

What a great way to spend a Friday night! A very knowledgeable instructor with a sense of humor made the class fun and very enjoyable. We will definitely be back and highly recommend! Cheers!

Wine School Coarses

Thus far, I've had the pleasure of completing the Wine Foundation, the Intermediate Wine coarse and some Advanced coarses at the Wine School of Phila. All have been outstanding! Both Alana and Keith are excellent teachers -- seriously knowledgeable about wine, but they also make the classes really fun. If you're intent on improving your wine knowledge in a professional and very enjoyable environment, I highly recommend the WSOP.

Some of our Favorite Places and People.

I highly recommend the Foundation Program for people who have a general interest in food and wine, as well as those considering pursuing a degree or certification. As a professional chef and cooking instructor, this course helped me make more educated food and wine pairing suggestions. The school’s unique approach doesn’t rely on route memorization of names and regions. Instructors engage your senses so you don’t just learn about the wines sampled. You learn ‘an approach’ to tasting any wine and to deducing regions, flavors and pairings. I’ll be hanging on to my class notebook forever.
