Whether you're a restaurant, a winery or in wine sales, a well-trained staff is your best asset. If you would like to train your staff on premise we can tailor a program to meet your needs.   You can also choose to use some of your own stock, giving your staff the advantage of gaining specific product knowledge. Cost will be adjusted accordingly. Please contact us to learn how you can get government funding to offset staff training costs.

Adventure in Wine’s WSET Level 2 course was an eye-opening experience. Michelle Paris and Brie Dema are both inspiring in their level of wine knowledge. They each have a great facility to make the in-class learning exciting. After 8 weeks, my own wine knowledge has grown tremendously. I am now very comfortable speaking with both guests and staff about the different styles, regions and quality levels of wine. The restaurant has seen a remarkable increase in wine sales since I took this course as a direct result of my new-found confidence and the knowledge and confidence I am able to pass on to our staff. Highly recommended!
