This course was fantastic. As a true wine-lover, especially a French wine-lover, this course was excellent. There was clearly a ton of work put into it and the content was great. I really appreciate how the information, which was rich and nuanced, was also super-digestible. This course would be perfect for both a novice or an expert. I will be back for more. Highly recommend!- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Matt S. from United States
