Jason’s classes are fun, entertaining, and chock full of information. The atmosphere in class is very comfortable. Questions are welcome and encouraged. Jason is very knowledgeable and easily imparts his enthusiasm for the subject of wine. I’ve been taking Jason’s classes for over 5 years. As a result I feel very comfortable ordering wine at a fancy restaurant as well as buying wine at liquor store or a wine shop. I’ve taken a few other classes and have belonged to a wine club, but Jason’s classes are far superior.
Jason has been a great speaker and teacher for the wine events that I have attended. So much in fact that I have used him a few times at my club for leading the discussions at our wine clubs. He is bright, informative, and can keep the discussion about wine down at a level for someone who is a novice and he can talk all night long with someone who knows their wines.
If you are ever in need of hiring someone to come out and lead a wine club or tasting, do not hesitate to try and get him to lead the group.
I have attended several of Jason’s Twin Cities Wine Education classes and seminars. Each time I was impressed with his enthusiasm and genuine passion for sharing his extensive wine knowledge. He has inspired my personal and professional pursuit of learning everything about wine. I highly recommend that you sign up for a class and find out for yourself.
My husband and I have taken a few classes with Jason that were held at North Loop Wine. We have always enjoyed Jason’s sense of humor, his story telling and of course the wines! The classes are informative, he is knowledgeable and we always learn something! Great experiences!
Jason is very knowledgeable and always does a very nice job providing background and education on all things wine. He is enthusiastic and genuinely wants to share his passion for wine. I appreciate his commitment to offering these opportunities in the Twin Cities.
Jason’s vast knowledge and enthusiasm for all aspects on the subject of wine make his classes very fun! His style, creativity and stories make learning easy and memorable for novice and experienced wine students alike. I have enjoyed several classes with Jason and highly recommend taking his classes often!
I’m always impressed with the amount of knowledge and information I get, and how much fun I have at Jason’s classes. He presents with an easy, personal style – it’s clear that he’s passionate about wine and loves sharing that with people.
Instead of simply using technical terms like “flinty, tannic, and Appellation d’Origine Controlee,” as we drink the wine, we hear about the place where the grapes are grown, the people, the food – we really get to know the wine.
I love the various settings for the classes – local restaurants, various wine shops, even at the University! I have and will continue recommending his classes to anyone interested in wine – creating many more and more converts to enjoying wine the Jason Kallsen way!
