Anne Gabriel - owner Annie's Wine Cottage, the #1 Choice on Columbus Dispatch, Wine Bar/ Shop:

"Daniel is the best...extremely knowledgeable.  I highly recommend to anyone seeking to further their wine education!"

Silvia Silver - Refectory Restaurant and Wine Shop :

"A wonderful learning opportunity ...  I had the pleasure of taking WSET 1 and 2 classes with Gizela & Daniel in December& January 2019. What a great couple- extremely knowledgeable ( and yet so humble) and passionate about learning and teaching others!   I love wine industry -working in restaurants & retail since 2006  and prior to that working in my family vineyard - and appreciate any opportunity I have to learn... and trust me ... I learned quite a few new things taking the classes !  If you are serious about your carrier in the wine industry or just want to take your wine knowledge to the next level you owe to yourself to sign up for at least one of the classes!"

Kathleen& Matt Haws, owners Ripple Wine Bar, Convington, KY :

"My husband (Matt Haws) and I really enjoyed this hands-on class! Perfect for wine enthusiasts who just want to learn more or for those who work in the industry that want to expand their knowledge. We are looking forward to continuing onto the next course (after we pass the test in January)!"

Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.

Brandon Snell, owner Soroca Imports(wine importer) :

"Excellent course. Daniel has a vast knowledge of wines."

WSET (WINE AND SPIRIT EDUCATION TRUST) CLASSES

Antique Vines LLC provides WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) classes for people from the wine industry (distributors, wine shops, wine bars, restaurants, etc.) and wine enthusiasts as well. 

The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is intended for people who have little or no prior knowledge of wines. It is designed to provide a sound but simple introduction to wines. The qualification will assist those who need a basic familiarity with the main types and styles of wines, for example people who work with wines as part of a larger beverage portfolio in the retail and hospitality sectors. Candidates will be able to know the key stages in grape growing and winemaking, list the principal types and styles of wine, state the key characteristics of wines made from the principal grape varieties as well as other examples of wines, and know the key principles involved in the storage and service of wine. They will consequently be in a position to answer customer queries and provide recommendations for the service of wine.  

Successfully candidates will get a WSET Certificate, a WSET pin, a Certified Wine Friendly Certificate and a Certified Wine Friendly Sticker for the entrance door of their wine business or for the place they work, or for their home door in case they are wine enthusiasts. Why not? Show your friends you're not only a wine friendly person, you are a Certified one. 

The WSET® Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits is intended for those who have little or no previous knowledge of the broad range of wines and spirits. Candidates will be able to interpret the labels of the major wines and spirits of the world and give guidance on appropriate selection and service, as well as understand the principles of wine tasting and evaluation. 

Successfully candidates will get a WSET Certificate, a WSET pin, a Certified Wine Friendly Certificate and a Certified Wine Friendly Sticker for the entrance door of their wine business or for the place they work, or for their home door in case they are wine enthusiasts. Why not? Show your friends you're not only a wine friendly person, you are a Certified one.

I am Gizela Natalia Duica, WSET Level 3 Wines Certified 


I graduated “Lucian Blaga University with a degree in Psychopedagogy in 1999, in Sibiu, Romania (Transylvania area). In 2013 I and my husband founded, built and managed Vampire's Wine Company, in Transylvania, bottling wine from different producers and Research Wine Institutes, under our registered trade marks and selling them on the market. In October 2014 I've started with WSET Level 1 Award in Wines,   WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits in January 2015 and WSET Level 3 Award in Wines in March 2019. I am extremely passionate about learning and tasting wines and I'd love to share these with you, beginning my career as a Wine Educator at Antique Vines LLC. I love the wine universe in all its aspects and I have the knowledge to help people to understand the styles of wines, label terminology, food pairing, wine principles and to evaluate/understand wine beyond their own taste and probably what is most important, to enjoy it! One of the things I like most are those gatherings of people where everybody speaks and laughs, clinging glasses of wine and bursting of joy. That means people relish their lives. Come to our wine classes to cling together, become a pro in wines and enjoy! Cheers! My e-mail : gizela@antiquevines.com
