I took the WSET Level 2 course with VSF in SXM and it was a great experience! Besides the very informative classes, which were given by Rosie, the whole team was very professional and personable. Rosie explained the subjects very well and went more in-depth when the students requested. It was a well organized and set up course which I thoroughly enjoyed and I passed with a Merit thanks to them! I now have so much more understanding and knowledge which I can use in my day-to-day job as a Restaurant Manager. We have an extensive wine list and I am able to better match the requirements of the guests. I am already looking forward to following another course with VSF! - Liza de Waard, Manager - Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort, Casino and Spa, St Maarten
I took the WSET2 VSF course to further my knowledge in wine for a high level of service on motor yachts. The teacher Rosie from VSF was very professional, knowledgeable and engaging. It was overall an excellent course with a nice, bright and clean setting for wine tasting. Rosie was very helpful, personable and extremely passionate about helping people gain confidence in understanding the world of wine. I definitely would recommend this course to anyone wanting to further their knowledge in wine. - Katie Griffin, Stewardess - MY Rhino
