CATCH by Simonis
"Een wijncursus volgen bij de wijnstudio is een beleving. Jeroen heeft mij en een aantal collega's in een aantal weken voorbereid op dit examen. Hij heeft heeft een waanzinnig grote passie voor wijn, brede vakkennis en kan daardoor de leerstof goed overbrengen op de cursisten. Naast de studieboeken gaf hij ons zoveel meer informatie. Het enthousiasme en de kennis waarmee de docent ons voorbereid heeft, zie je terug in de extra uren die hij (in zijn eigen tijd) voor ons heeft vrijgemaakt. We zijn goed voorbereid en we hebben echt genoten van deze cursus. Zo gingen wij vol vertrouwen het examen tegemoet. Wij hebben naast het certificaat iets net zo belangrijks meegekregen...een nog grotere passie en interesse voor wijnsoorten! Dit alles door de waanzinnige begeleiding. Dank jullie wel "Wijnstudio" voor de  Inspirerende en leerzame  weken!Peter de Ruiter - Catch By Simonis, manager"
