    I was an international student. The program was handed very professionally, small group, personal one to one interaction from Alessandra with us (students). Very well structured program. Different language was not a problem. Doubts were solved. All the program was covered on time. I learned more, very satisfied, and feel more confident with my wine knowledge. It was fun and we tasted great wines.

    The Florida Wine Academy Level 3 was overall an excellent course. I researched this course as well as another offered by a different company, and I’m very glad I decided on this one. The class size was small so there was plenty of individual attention and interaction throughout the daily lessons. I thought the structure and pace of the course really encouraged learning; it was intensive but thorough, and we alternated theory with tastings. In this way the sessions stayed interesting and the wines we tasted were relevant to the wines and regions we had just covered in the theory portions. Alessandra is truly a good teacher as she knows exactly what information needs to give and delivers it in a clear and interesting way. The extra homework and practice exercises helped prepare me for the exam, and were fun to do. We tried many different wines, everything from general appellation level up to high-end and reserve wines. I left the class feeling very satisfied with the knowledge I had gained, and thought I had been well-prepared for the exam. I would definitely recommend this class to others looking to either improve their professional knowledge or just to take an interesting and educational class on wine.

    THE WSET L3 AT FLORIDA WINE ACADEMY WAS A GREAT LEARNING COURSE. I’M A WINE PROFESSIONAL WHICH HAS TAKEN MULTIPLE CERTIFICATION SUCH AS CERTIFIED SOMMELIER BY CMS, ITALIAN WINE SPECIALIST BY NASA AND SAKE PROFESSIONAL BY SAKE EDUCATION COUNCIL. THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST COURSE I HAVE TAKEN SO FAR. IT WAS INTENSE BUT WELL LAYED OUT, WITH THEORY, PRACTICE AND LOT OF WINE TASTING,WITH WINE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE CLASS WAS SMALL WICH GAVE STUDENT THE POSSIBILITY TO INTERACT WITH THE TEACHER. ALESSANDRA IS A GREAT TEACHER, WELL PREPARED, PROFESSIONAL AND TEACH WITH A TRUE PASSION. THE COURSE HAS DEFINETELY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATION AND GAVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND MY KNOWLEDGE AND MEET SOME GREAT PEOPLE WITH TRUE PASSION FOR WINE AND SPIRITS. I’M VERY CONFIDENT TO RECOMMEND COURSES AT FLORIDA WINE ACADEMY AT ALL LEVEL, BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED.

    Alessandra, the school director has been exelent, always taking the extra steps to keep everybody informed and at the same level of education.
    Location is great in downtown Miami. if you are persuing wine and spirits education, this is a great place to learn.

    Florida Wine Academy is professional, organized and most of all very knowledgable. The course work for WSET 3 is intense, but well worth it! The wine tasting section is stellar. FWA provides the course with a variety of wines, which allows you to really get a solid understanding on how to properly asses the quality of a wine. I love being able to connect the geography, viticulture and enology back to a wine.

    Alessandra is such a lovely teacher and her passion for wine is truly contagious!

    I recently completed levels 2 & 3 with the Florida Wine Academy. L3 is significantly more detailed than L2 and requires home study; it is a very informative and interactive course providing the right balance of theory & practice involving the tasting & analysis of approx 100 wines. Above all it is a very rewarding and interesting course for the wine professional or enthusiast.
    Most of all, Alessandra’s passion, communication skills, knowledge and down-to-earth nature made this a great course.
    I highly recommend the Florida Wine Academy.

    Very happy and satisfied that I took WSET 3 with the Florida Wine Academy. Alessandra is very professional and taught an intensive class in one week. She also brought in MW candidates to give brief theory lectures. If you’re looking for a provider to take any level of WSET I 100% recommend the Florida Wine Academy.

    I took the intensive course for WSET Level 3 and had the most amazing experience. First of all, the classroom is well lit and comfortable for long study sessions. Then, the course is segmented in a way that makes the information stick, and finally, the instructor delivers the content in a passionate and clear way. She will answer any questions and clarify any doubts. I truly believe the course made me appreciate wine a whole lot more and made me excited for future courses. At the Florida Wine Academy they truly prepare you for the exam and give you all the information you need to learn in an unbiased way. They care about shaping your knowledge rather than giving you just what you need to know. Overall it was a beautiful week were I learnt a lot and tasted great wines. One thing that is unique is the amount of wine you get to try! We tried around 70+ wines in a week, definitely something amazing that I won’t soon forget. I recommend this course or any other to anyone interested in wine! 100% and 5/5 all around!

    A really fantastic experience across the board. The only bad part is waiting for the results. Alessandra is a fantastic teacher and truly cares about her students. I passed the exam with Merit. If I had heeded her warning on how hard the written portion is I think I could have made distinction. Either way, great course, 100% worth the money. If there was any higher level courses available I would be taking them with her. (Its over an hour drive for me but totally worth it)
