    As a Winepreneur and Inspirational Wine Blogger with Wine With Nat, taking WSET Level 1 was the right decision. WSET Level 1 Award in Wines study guide and class provided me with a great introduction to the main types and styles of wine: light wines, sparkling wine, and fortified wine. It also provided information on how to store and serve wine, and the basic principles of food and wine pairing. I received the study guide well in advance, which made it easier to follow along in class. The class went in greater depth on wine tasting technique: look, smell, and taste. Alessandra with The Florida Wine Academy provided a great presentation and answered everyone’s questions before taking the exam. I highly recommend this class to any wine lovers or individuals ready to become a wine professional. I was provided with a better understanding and appreciation about wine. Looking forward to many more wine classes with the Florida Wine Academy.

    As a wine enthusiast, my curiosity about wine has increased over time. The more I learn about it, the bigger my curiosity and interest. This is why, I enrolled to the very 1st WSET Level 1 class at the Florida Wine Academy. Looking back at the experience, I can honestly say that it changed my outlook on wine. It opened doors to a whole new world of knowledge, and sparked my curiosity even further. Will definitely come back for Level 2.

    It was a refreshing to find a committed wine professional teaching this class in Miami. I’ve had the opportunity of attending several tastings and classes in the past and can recommend this class as the most informative and structured. This class is about tasting and understanding the basis of wine from an educational perspective. It is also fun and every attendee can feed from the knowledge of others in the group.

    Looking forward to taking next steps at this school!

Alessandra, is very knowledgeable and professional, the class exceeded my expectations, I learned so many different aspects about wine tasting, paring, rating as well as different varieties of wines and the regions were these are produced, I highly recommend to anyone who is interested on taking this class, either for expanding knowledge on wines or just to simply have fun while learning, this class will not disappoint anyone, on the other hand it will an awesome experience.

    Cheers!

    Amazing course! As “the girl behind the wine glass” in @DrinkCabStayFab’s Instagram, I wanted to further and certify my wine knowledge. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a very stuffy environment, but Alessandra is a fabulous instructor. She makes the class fun and is very kind and patient to answer everyone’s questions. Definitely a master in her craft and great at explaining concepts. The course teaches you the fundamentals of wine from how it’s made and different styles, to pairing it with food (my favorite part). I highly recommend her courses and I look forward in continuing my wine education with her and following in her footsteps as a blogger to instructor!

    Dear Alessandra,
    The WSET Level 1 Award in Wine class was very informative, interactive and very well organized. I would highly recommend any body interest in learning more about wine to start taking the different levels.
    In one day I was able to learn so much, and now I’m looking forward to Level 2. It was very interesting to do the wine tasting with you, as finally I was able to understanding how the aromas and the flavors in wine interact and so many things started to make sense.
    Thank you for bringing the WSET courses to South Florida; we definitely needed an Academy like yours for people looking to expand their education in the world of wine.
    Best regards
    Miryam

    Fantastic course designed for those wanting to enhance their basic wine knowledge. As a person who has taken numerous wine classes at Florida International University with Professor Chip Cassidy I thought there was going to be an extreme amount of overlap. I was surprised to experience the content of this course in a new refreshing way that helped me grasp concepts better than before especially when it came to tasting. This course has helped me become more confident in my current wine sales job as well as just discussing wine with those more knowledgeable than myself. I look forward to continuing my education with Florida Wine Academy and Alessandra.

    Best,

    I was happy to find the Florida wine academy while searching for a replacement to my cancelled level one WSET course at the Biltmore Hotel.
    It was cheaper and did not require me to purchase a set of wine tasting glasses which I appreciated.

    The school and tasting room are located on the 32nd floor of a nice building in downtown Miami, with plenty of parking options around and easy Uber access. We were greeted with a cup of coffee by Alessandra, the founder, and instructor. We then proceeded to introduce ourselves and describe our different interests in learning about wine. This naturally breaks the ice and allows for a fluid discussion and participation during the course of the day. Students from different backgrounds of the food and wine industry along with aficionados attended the course which I found fascinating because we were able to get a glimpse of the wine world from each. We had a wine blogger, a distributor, a retailer, a waiter and a restaurateur among others.

    Level one is an introductory course to the world of wine and winemaking. The course starts out with simple notions of how wine is made, in which principal regions and the different types of wines, followed by the most exciting part of the day; the wine tasting. Look, smell and taste then spit never gets boring and with Alessandra guiding us throughout, one starts slowly detecting new aromas and identifying common and different elements.

    The open discussions were particularly helpful and the overall experience was excellent. I will definitely be back for level 2.

    The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines with Alessandra from the Florida Wine Academy was fantastic. Alessandra is an excellent instructor with an interesting background and a true passion for wine and wine education, which was apparent during the course. The course was presented in a way that was thorough and professional yet with a casual approach. She answered individual questions completely and provided an environment that allowed students to ask questions freely. Even though I felt I was “equipped” with basic wine knowledge prior to taking the course, I learned so much and Alessandra shared bits of wine knowledge that extended beyond the curriculum, which was helpful and appreciated. Highly recommend the course and look forward to continuing with the WSET program through the Florida Wine Academy. Thank you Alessandra.

    As a full-time professional (and wine drinker), it’s challenging to find time during the week to get the necessary education to achieve the level of wine knowledge I want. The Florida Wine Academy’s Saturday Level 1 Award course is perfect for anyone. Here’s the thing, you need to take the Level 1 Award course with Alessandra whether you’re someone pursuing a career in wine, a wine enthusiast, or someone that would just like to get a foundation for everyday wine drinking. If you’re reading this review, that means you’re already interested. Stop thinking, sign up, and you’ll thank me later.

    I got the WSET Course Level 1 as a Christmas gift from my wife. I always wanted to understand more about wine, but thought it was very confusing. Through this course I was able to understand it well better. Nicole Ramos is a great instructor. And the training is detailed, but structured in a way that works without being boring. The tasting techniques help to put the theory with practice. And finally, the food pairing exercise is the “cherry on the sundae”!

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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)

    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
