Past Students LOVE What They Learned With Natalie's Previous Wine Courses

Before I took this course I felt lost in the wine aisles of the liquor store! 

I knew basic pairing rules like fish with white wines and red meats with reds, but that was all.  

After the course, I not only expanded my practical buying/pairing knowledge, but I have also found some new favourites! 

I now feel much more confident when choosing new wines that suit my taste, and will even be brave enough to order a suitable bottle from the list at a restaurant the next time I go out with friends.

Is This Course Right for Me?

This course is for you if you feel that ... 

  • I love wine, but I'm not an expert. I'm more interested in pairings, especially cheese.
  • I've learned a lot about wine, but I'm not a sommelier. I want to improve the taste of wines that I love with cheese.
  • I’ve completed sommelier or other wine courses, however they didn't really take an in-depth focus on wine and cheese pairing.

This course is NOT for you if ...  

  • You've completed an advanced certificate program in cheesemaking or cheese appreciation that also had a comprehensive wine pairing component.  
  • Fromagiers and those who make cheese who are also wine experts.
  • Those who think they already are The Big Cheese need not apply ;) 

What's the Cost?

  • 5 Course Modules ($300 Value)  
  • Weekly Live Video Tastings ($200 Value)
  • Workbooks, Pairing Tools, Checklists ($100)
  • Archived Videos with Lifetime Access ($100)
  • Membership to Private Facebook Group Inner Circle (Bonus)
