    Note: Wines are not included in the online course price, however, I have negotiated with my retail partner JC Select Wines to get you the required wines for the course and she can ship them to your house or pick up if locally.  You DO need to purchase at least 8 of them which will cost around $155 plus shipping.  When you enroll I will send you the details of how this works, but it’s really convenient!
