"INWine is an intense and highly complete course which helped me to understand in more depth the world of Wines & Spirits. Thanks to INWine, I was able to successfully answer my blind tasting question during one of my job interviews. INWine is not only interesting, but also fun and a great way to learn about the Wine & Spirits world with people who share your interests."
