    A very informative and interactive course providing the right balance of theory & practice.

    I recently completed my WSET 1 and WSET 2 with Alessandra. Both courses had a good balance of wine industry and wine enthusiasts attendees. Alessandra is a natural teacher and I’m sure will become a real presence in the South Florida wine community.

    I highly recommend FWA.

    Alessandra is the kind of teacher you hope for when indulging in a subject as complex as wine. The WSET 2 course is very informative as well as enjoyable. Florida Wine Academy is excellent!

    Highly recommend Level 2 for anyone interested in wines and spirits – either professionally or enthusiastically! Alessandra is a very passionate about wine, making the class attendance and discussion extremely engaging. You really do learn a lot about wine and how to develop your tasting palate. After successfully completing Level 2, I’ve enrolled in Level 3 to continue my educational journey!

    My 2 biggest fears about educational courses – the quality of the teacher and the difficulty of the subject matter. If there was a rating higher than 5, I’d give it to Alessandra at Florida Wine Academy. The WSET level 2 course is very well put together and anyone interested in learning about wines should take it. Alessandra created a warm, welcoming, and comfortable environment. Her wine knowledge is impressive but not intimidating. Florida Wine Academy is a great resource for the Miami wine scene and I highly recommend taking the WSET courses with Alessandra.

    WSET Level 2 is my second course completed with Florida Wine Academy – and it won’t be my last. I’m signing up for WSET Level 3 right after I finish this review. And, you should too. Alessandra, Guilherme, and the team are exceptional, not only as professionals but people. Don’t invest your money anywhere else. Stop wasting time and start tasting wine. Let’s do this!

    Take all your classes from Alessandra — who could write the book “How to teach so people remember”. She makes info interesting, makes sense of the sensations, and trains you to taste like a well-trained pro. Great for both trade veterans and avid collectors who want to fill in their gaps or leap to the next level. South Florida collectors should stay alert to Florida Wine Academy.

    I highly recommend Florida Wine Academy if you are interested in taking the WSET courses. Alessandra and Guilherme are very professional and dedicated to helping students learn to appreciate and understand the scents and flavors, and describe what is in front of them. I have a much better understanding but am eager to learn more and can’t wait to take WSET Level 3 in a couple of months.
