We are lucky to have the Wine School of Philadelphia!
I love this place! I had a great time at the Sommelier Smackdown.
The school is down to earth, real and fun, the way wine should be.
I loved being at the Wine School and working with Keith.

This was the fourth class I attended at the Wine School. The first three were wine classes that I thoroughly enjoyed and found extremely informative. This time, I thought I'd try something a bit different and chose to attend a Mixology class. I went into this knowing nothing about cocktails and not particularly liking them. Keith explained the basics of, and the science behind, cocktails. He taught us how to build and adjust a basic cocktail so that it can be customized to be enjoyed by me or anyone. There were a few people in the class that clearly had a more than beginners level of knowledge on the subject, but who also seemed to get a lot out of it. I would recommend this class, or any of the School's classes, to anyone who wants to add some additional color to their life or just have an great and interesting night out.
My husband and I received this as a gift. It was a great gift. We enjoyed the class and all of the information. The instructor was wonderful - answering all questions and giving lots of helpful tips.
Attended the Sommelier Smack Down. We enjoyed the wine and food pairings and found all the wines interesting selections. Jaquelyn the guest Sommelier was lovely and informative. Neil, you have great knowledge, but I had a hard time following you. You never finish your sentences and kept going on to the next before you finished. I took off one star due to that.
This was my first class and I loved it. I picked up so many helpful tips that I can share with our customers at the winery and also with my friends. The instructor was wonderful, so knowledgeable and non-intimidating. The class moved at a great pace, we had the time to ask questions, talk with classmates and enjoy the wine. Perfect class for anyone who loves wine!
My boyfriend and I had a great time at Wine Smarts! I was slightly confused about not receiving a tasting pairing with our wine pairings because I thought that was part of the VIP ticket, but we still enjoyed the information we learned and the wines selected for the course. I also thought it was great that the instructor allowed the students to help themselves to additional tastings after the formal portion of the class concluded. I would definitely recommend this course to friends!
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.
The wine school is great for learning.
I earned my diploma at the Wine School. I recommend it.
