"I just want to let you know that I appreciate the work you've put into this course and are continuing to put in to it to add to its already bountiful, richness!!! I am learning a lot and know others are too."
"Great intro to wines and the winemaking process."
"I very much enjoyed taking this course, and found it very informative."
"I found this course very informative and the instructor was disarmingly charming while still imparting significant knowledge in viticulture and winemaking. The course modules are succinct, allowing me to watch in bite-sized chunks. Terms were clearly defined, and the language was accurate but not filled with the normal pretentiousness one often finds associated with wine. A definite recommendation for wine newbies, but also for folks who know wine well and want to know more about the vineyard."

Michael is a winemaker at an award-winning boutique winery in Central Virginia. He has lectured at Virginia Tech and contributed to programs at Piedmont Virginia Community College, and he also regularly conducts seminars and tours for local wine drinkers. In 2013, Michael and his brother, Luke, relaunched the pre-Prohibition Monticello Wine Company — an historic Virginia wine business founded in 1873. Their goals are to make great wine from the area's top growers, be ambassadors for Virginia wine, and focus on wine education. Michael lives in Charlottesville with his wife and three kiddos.
