Als wijnliefhebber, maar nog geen kenner, vond ik de beoordeling van wijnen vaak een hoog blabla-gehalte hebben. Ik heb er een hoop van geleerd en ben nog meer liefhebber geworden. Ik vond de cursus goed opgezet, zeer goed lesmateriaal (het boek en dan vooral de ‘aromacirkel’! Die gebruik ik nog wekelijks!) en vooral leuke avonden met leuke mensen. En een wijntje natuurlijk.
