Info and Opinion on WSET Level 3 @ the Napa Valley Wine Academy

Hello Everyone,

Seeking for some opinions… I am currently deciding whether I should sign up for the 8 week preparation course for the WSET level 3, 2 days a week, 2 hours per day. It surely seems complete, and looks like it can help me prepare for my CMS certificate level happening at the end of July.

Has anyone taken any course at the Napa Valley Wine Academy? Any opinions on the WSET level 3 course, and wines tasted?

Thank you!

Coined “Snoob” via /r/wine

Coined “Snoob”

Since I'm new to the wine industry as a five dining and banquet server, I'm wondering- would I be considered a "snoob" since I'm less that a month old as a wine enthusiast and I have preferences such as 'should always have a Cork' and 'no less than five years old'?

I'm a wanna be snob, but too new to the game to have such a title… And I'm no where near serious as some might be regarding wine. I love the idea and culture, but I don't ever think I'll ever have the depth of knowledge to gain such a breadth of knowledge.
I should learn as much as possible and I'm already drowning myself in materials…

Am I a "snoob" or what would you call it?
