Thank you so much for taking this MasterClass with me. I hope you've enjoyed the journey. But more importantly, I hope it's enhanced your passion for wine. I hope it's given you knowledge and technique to better enjoy wine. I hope that you're out there going to vineyards. It could be Napa Valley, Washington, Italy, France. There's so many amazing places to go. It's about experience it. You taste it. You talk to the people. You read about it. And as a student, you have to go there too. And the way you can go there is first taste the wines. I hope you now feel confident enough to host your own tasting with your friends at your house, trying different wines. And discuss what a great wine is. And more importantly, share things together, special moments enhanced by special bottles. If you don't already have a wine collection, start thinking about it. Everyone can have one. It can be 10 bottles. It can be 1,000 bottles. That's what's fun about wine, finding that special bottle, leaving it in your cellar, and watching the magic happen as it changes with each year. Remember that the journey with wine never ends. Thank you for taking this journey with me. And thank you for taking the MasterClass. Remember, drink great wine, love wine, savor the moment. Thanks again. [MUSIC PLAYING]

As an experienced wine enthusiast I came into the course with extensive background. I continue to learn at every opportunity and expand my knowledge.
Knew most of this but nicely packaged and presented and good to llearn a few new things - eg linerarity, which I have often observed but didn’t know
wine is my best friend, i get to judge a wine good or bad, but they never judge me.
I found this class very practical; picked up some very useful tips. It gives you a sense of what's going on in a bottle of wine, it's story, what to look for in terms of quality. Can't wait to try some of the wines mentioned in the programme with my friends.
