    Alessandra did a fantastic job teaching the WSET Level 1. I appreciated her thoroughness, passion, and her willingness to spend extra time discussing any relevant areas of interest that were raised in class. I would take another class at the Florida Wine Academy in a heartbeat.

    I had a great experience learning the WSET Level 1 in Spirits with Alessandra at The Florida Wine Academy. I enjoyed every aspect of the course and Alessandra is a great instructor, very passionate and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t consider taking the next WSET Levels anywhere else. Cheers
