“Having done my Level 2 online I decided to take my Level 3 in person and they could not have been more different. Being able to meet and discuss and taste wines on a weekly basis was fantastic. I found Claire’s teaching method incredibly informative and enthusiastic within a nicely relaxed approach. The support I received in our weekly sessions and the feedback from my assignments gave me a great understanding, enabling me to go into the exam and gain a Distinction. More importantly she gave me the confidence in my own knowledge. I have now got a job working in the wine trade and an studying for my WSET L4 Diploma”

“At Corney & Barrow we have put a number of our team through Claire’s WSET courses at both Level 2 and 3. It is essential that those working at Corney & Barrow have an excellent understanding of the wines and agencies within our portfolio which helps reinforce our customers’ confidence in our business.
Claire’s WSET courses are very professionally delivered, thoroughly enjoyable for employees and she works hard with each individual to make sure that the candidate is successful in the examination.”

“We have worked with Claire for a number of years now. We are delighted to have her on board at the school as her training and pass marks are of a very high standard. She is extremely professional and makes wine study FUN. As such we are over the moon to have a joint partnership with her covering the WSET modules and training”

“We at Aizle don’t have a dedicated Sommelier and instead require all our staff to have a good knowledge of wine. Taking the Level 3 WSET course with Claire at Case Studies Wine School was invaluable to our staff’s wine education, and to our business. I’d recommend Claire for anyone who wants to further their wine knowledge.”
Krystal Goff, Proprietor, Aizle
