    This is a fabulous course.It is the best of the Masters program so far, but each one of these is better than the last.<br /><br />Don is a great instructor, and the special lecturers all add great bit of color and insight from their areas of specialty. The courses are a pleasure to attend, and the flow of information is perfectly paced.<br /><br />I highly recommend it.

    The Burgundy Master Class was fantastic! I have learned so much and taken away so many great things. I have to say, listening to Don Kinnan and watching his presentations was fantastic. He not only shares his knowledge, but makes you feel as you are in France. Watching the online session became part of my mornings and felt almost like a family that takes me back to Burgundy :) I will definitely miss it and I look forward to signing up for more classes!

    The Master of Burgundy program (...) rewards thoughtful study and review, provides what I felt to be relevant and insightful perspectives about the region, its wines and vignerons. My wife and I traveled to Burgundy earlier this year and used our new knowledge to have an embedded, local experience. The webinars are excellent and Mr. Kinnan\'s style fits the complexities of the region perfectly. His early admonition that \&quot;no one is an expert\&quot; sets the tone for his deconstruction of the appellation\'s peculiarities and nuances. My experience and humility are amplified from this course.
