  • Vinstitute Wine School is amazingly good. Moss is an excellent teacher, making every class interactive and personal. Every class is different as they reflect the interests of that class. Very hard to accomplish in real life, but he does. Exceptional.
  • Vinstitute’s Vinsight course - the Fundamentals of Tasting - far exceeded my expectations. I expected the course to be ponderous and somewhat dry; it was anything but. Moss is a fantastic course leader - so clear in his explanations, so relevant in what he says and how he says it, and with a great sense of humour. Although I’ve attempted to learn more about wine on my own, there’s just something about what Moss teaches and more importantly how he teaches it that finally made things all come together. A very, very enjoyable and valuable couple of hours. I’ll be recommending this course to all my Okanagan visitors.
  • We visit Intersection winery every time we are in Osoyoos/Oliver. The first time we stopped in we met Moss and he provided such a great tasting experience. This time we visited we participated in the Vinstitute, which is run by Moss. We had such a great time not only getting to see part of the wine making process but also learning about other wines and how they are made.
  • Anyone with any level of knowledge or interest in wine will enjoy these wine classes. You'll taste rare wines that you won't have access to any other place and learn more than you'll expect. Recommend for anyone.
  • Very knowledgable and friendly instructor. Moss took the time to explain in every detail how to differentiate wines. A well worth trip to the area.
