Hear what people say about Evan’s courses and abilities.

"For being a wine instructor with an awesome palate and a vast amount of knowledge, Evan teaches with a style that is unpretentious, and enjoyable to learn from! His passion for wine history, the wine industry, and wine itself shines through in his classes! I have enjoyed having Evan as my wine instructor several times and highly recommend his classes if you are looking to learn more about wine...whether you are a beginner wine learner or much beyond!
-Sharon Marks  President, Ontario Wine Society - Niagara Chapter / Director of Marketing, Nyarai Cellars"

"You've always been the best taster in my books!"
- Carole Davies, LCBO Product Consultant

"I wish i still lived in Niagara....my best wine courses were with you Evan."
- Shirley Stewart, Toronto

"There is no doubt in my mind that Evan has one of the most honed palates in the land."
- Jamie Drummond, Sommelier/Good Food Revolution

"Evan from Wine Savvy is a very professional and engaging instructor/Sommelier. We have had him come and teach our staff, with different knowledge levels, for several years now, and he always meets and exceeds my expectations. I would highly recommend Evan for all your wine educational needs!"
- Chevonn Cook, Diamond Estates Retail Manager

"I wanted to let you know how much I have learned.  Up to the last 3 years, all I consumed was beer.  I then slightly branched out to drink a Gewurz or a red Zin.  Before this class, I had never tried a Pinot, Merlot, Moscato, etc.  Not only have I now tasted and enjoyed these varietals, I am now knowledgeable about areas, techniques, and geography.  Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge and I know that I will pass this on to my students at UT."
- Carol Costello, Ph.D., Professor, University of Tennessee

"Evan has a fantastic palate and an unbelievable passion for great wines. He is an amazing instructor who has guided me a long way with my knowledge of local and international wines.  I have completed both levels 1 and 2 and would be interested in participating in any future levels."
- Tanya Dowber, Niagara Falls
