Florida Wine Academy, the leading provider of wine, sake and spirits courses and professional training services in Florida, announced today the opening of a new office in Downtown Miami, Florida.

Their new address is 1 SE 3rd Avenue Suite #1440 Miami, FL 33131. The academy is still located in the SunTrust International building, but in a larger space on the 14th floor.  All other contact information, including phone numbers, remain the same.

“As Florida Wine Academy continues to grow, we are excited to expand our footprint in the Miami area,” said Guilherme Macedo, Florida Wine Academy’s General Manager. “This new facility allows us to better serve the needs of our local customers and employees, and reflects our long-term commitment to expanding the wine education across Florida.”

“We are the only wine academy in the United States to offer courses in English, Spanish and Portuguese. This is ideal for the Florida market and also for students flying from Latin and Central America,” said Alessandra Esteves, Director of Wine Education and holder of the WSET Diploma, a wine qualification only achieved by 9,000 people in the world since 1969.
One of the highlights of the new office is the larger classroom space and a reception area that students can use to study or network.  The new classroom has plenty of natural light and will be big enough to host events and tastings for bigger groups.
