I wanted to express my heart-felt thanks & appreciation for your wonderful lectures & demonstrations which you delivered while we were staying at Bournemouth University (BU). We learned a lot, shared a lot & experienced a lot from them. I sincerely hope that you’ll visit our school and let our students & teaching staff enjoy what we have had in BU some day in the future.

Erica Dent delivers interesting and fun lectures on wine.  On attending the WSET Foundation course tutored by Erica I became inspired.  Six months later I was working the harvest at Belle Pente Vineyard & Winery in Oregon!  In addition to providing great teaching Erica is prepared to go out of her way to provide help and guidance on the wine industry.
