Thanks, Jennifer. I really enjoy these Grape of the Week tutorials!

Don Nichols

The wine tasting course was great! Id heard of the five steps before, but not about all the details you shared. The tone used in writing is very conversational and not condescending. Thats always a welcome sign from people new to the wine tasting environment. Thanks for offering this email class.

Amy Wunderlich

I love these Grape of the Week emails! Thank you for sharing and I will share with my family and friends!

Linda (Linn) Remling Mills

I enjoyed the course and learned quite a bit. I have been lucky enough to have met several of the winemakers here in Virginia, and between them and courses like this, my knowledge and appreciation of wines continues to expand.

Jan Pavlacka
Palmyra, Virginia

I did very much enjoy reading the wine tasting course! Also, we had a great time at our first Wines by Jennifer Octoberfest thanks!

Andrea Nattrass

Andy and I loved the information. Although we do frequent wineries when we travel, and have a fair amount of knowledge, we learned so much more. Thank you - we enjoyed it!

Thank you for the tasting information. I also so enjoy your Grape of the Week series!

I've been seriously reading and tasting wines for about five years. That makes me an experienced novice. Your wine course is awesome. It contains information that many books simply beat around the bush about. Thank you for your straight forward, to-the-point facts about tasting wine.

Hi Jennifer,

Thank you so much for the great information. I was able to use it while doing some wine tasting there and enjoyed it immensely!

I look forward to coming back up to Wines by Jennifer.

Yes, we did enjoy the wine tasting series. We even forwarded it on to some of our wine drinking
friends and hope to make it in for a tasting session soon.


Lori Baker

Great refresher course - I used it to educate the friends I brought with me two weekends in a row!

Scott Ruther

I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. My three sisters are more the wine drinkers, so I forwarded the course to them. Thanks!

Janet Wolford

I enjoyed the course very much. Simple and easy to understand, but informative. I will have to go back and review though, as I don't always devote enough time to all five steps.

Visited your shoppe today with my daughter-in-law. It was so neat!

Sandy Davis
Maryville, MO

Thank you for the 5 lessons in wine tasting. I learned a lot and look forward to visiting you soon. I also forwarded these lessons to several friends that will be joining us for our wine tasting experience.

Donna Robinson
Basehor, KS

We really enjoyed the course, and learned quite a few points! This will help us not only more fully appreciate our wines, but also better understand the "why" of why we like/don't like, etc.

Thanks so much; we are happy to be members of the club.

Pamela Miller & Mike Cummings

Excellent!! Thank you!

Angelica B. Rodriguez

Thanks and see you soon!

Analee Lanio

Jennifer -

Not only did I very much enjoy the 5 day tasting course, I LOVE your store. I stopped by for the first time last Friday, after researching several KC-area wine stores online. The layout, the selection, the gals that work there - all phenomenal!

I will definitely be visiting your store often - every time I'm back, prior to my move...and as a REGULAR when I settle in.

Jen Guffey

Hi Jennifer:

I enjoyed the course very much. Well done and very informative. Thanks!

Very nice, thanks.

I enjoyed the information on Wine Tasting. It's nice to understand what makes a wine taste the way it does. It really helps explain what makes a really good wine and why some wines aren't very good.


Mark Falls

Yes, great idea...very concise. I've been trying to help out a family member who wants to learn more about wine...forwarding him those emails put him much further ahead in a much more concise fashion than I had done so far!

Andy Ferguson

Enjoyed it very much.. Also learned a few things. Thanks.

Jim Clark


That was a great little course. We enjoyed it immensely. We hope to see more of this type of thing in the future. It was a lot of fun sitting on the deck and reading the course and drinking wine.


Scott Garrett & CJ Knapp
Parkville, MO


I did enjoy the 5-day wine course. It was just enough information and presented in such a way that a novice like me can really learn something.

We get to Wines by Jennifer as often as we can and when we do thoroughly enjoy it. I tell as many friends as I can; even my nephew who lives in Michigan. I hope I can convince him to become a customer. I am still working on it.

Thanks again,

Karen Thompson

Hi Jennifer,

I enjoyed it very much. Great information to have about wine - it helps the novice feel a bit more comfortable.

I have shared it with others. In fact, two friends will be heading up your way Saturday.

Chris Ann Carnelia

Jennifer and staff,

Great course! I thought it was a super refresher and more importantly, a reminder to take time to savor the wonderful world awaiting in each glass. One only has to take the time to explore the dimensions on a regular basis to fully appreciate what wine has to offer.

As the weather has warmed...and hopefully dried a bit, Pennie and I look forward to our evenings at WBJ. It's always a great prelude to some local dining.

Dennis Watkins
Liberty, MO

I found this very enjoyable. It was mostly things that I have heard, but it was nicely organized and it made for a good reminder.


Dave McCoy
Parkville, MO

Loved the wine course!

Sarah Reed, CPC
North Kansas City, MO

Hello Jennifer,

I thought that the tasting course was excellent! I think that it is a great idea to throw out little tidbits like that to the subscribers.

Larry Killer
Overland Park, KS

Yes, they were very interesting and I passed them on to a couple of friends that might be interested in joining the Wine Club. Thanks for putting these together.

Chris Scharff
Lenexa, KS

It was brief, more than anecdotal, and enjoyable to read. Thanks!

Eric Van Buskirk


I enjoyed it sooooo much and really have learned more than I can tell you. I'm going to print them and share with some of my friends.

Please mail a few of your business cards/brochures etc. so that I can "package" them with the printouts. I'll put them the class information on nice stationary-type paper which I plan to buy this weekend.....with wine bottles/grapes etc. of course....

Mary Jane McKnight
Lake Waukomis, MO

Thanks! Great info - hope to stop by soon!

Dorothy Sparks
Iola, KS

Hi Jennifer!

Believe it or not, I only just now found time to read through the "Wine Tasting" course you sent. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

Deborah Osborne
Kansas City, MO

My husband and I read every bit of all 5 parts of the course. It was absolutely fantastic for a couple of rookies like us. I can never acquire too much information so keep it coming!

Bobbie Hackett


I consider myself very knowledgeable about wines and initially wondered what the course would hold for me. I was pleasantly surprised by the course. I felt it was extremely well done and well versed. Your knowledge was impressive and you laid it out in layman terms. Very well done!

Thanks for the wonderful course.


Carol Baughman

Yes, I did enjoy the course very much.

I have been drinking and collecting wine for quite a few years and I found it to be a great refresher course, as well as learning new items, too.

Thanks so much for putting this wonderful information together for wine enthusiasts.


Cheri Bailey


I found the course very helpful and was in the store over the weekend and had a great time.


Nicole Barton


I enjoyed the five emails concerning wine tasting very much. They were simple and easy to understand.

Again, thank you for the wine-tasting education and I wish you continued success in your business.

Toni Hamel
St. Louis, MO

Jennifer, great course....I really enjoy your site and if I'm ever in the area intend on stopping in to your boutique. We live in NW Montana by Glacier Park. Quite a drive as you can see but do go that way now and then.

Jim Weakly

I loved the course and thank you for helping this "novice" discover how to truly appreciate wine!

I will spread the word!

Thanks again!

Debbie Wright

These emails were the most interesting and informative directions I have ever read regarding wine tasting. And so learner friendly!

I hope everyone I forwarded to signs up.

Cynthia Fisher

Thanks it was great! I've already told my friends that we need to come up for a girls' afternoon once the weather gets nicer. I've never been there but heard great things about it!


I have enjoyed the lessons. I brought some friends up for a tasting and to purchase wine. We are going to come back and enjoy the patio and more great wine.

Thank you for the lessons!

Debra Detel


The course is very good, actually exceptionally good. Your five basic steps are terrific, well written and educational, even to an "old" wine drinker like me.

On one of my next trips to Kansas City to visit with family, I will make the short trip to Parkville and visit your establishment.


Tom Fasl
St. Louis, MO


I enjoyed the course very much and I am really looking forward to putting it into practice at your establishment.

Best Regards,

Mike Neale

Thank you Jennifer,

I enjoyed the "5 Days to Expert Wine Tasting" course very much. It was very complete, easy to understand, and fun & easy to read. It was like "Vinology 201", good job!

I have shared it with a number of friends & family.

Looking forward to our next visit to Parkville, and your shop.

BTW, enjoyed reading the story of "Squatty", and how he came to be.

Thanks for sharing !

Joe Massi


I loved the "5 Days to Expert Wine Tasting" course that you emailed! I have already signed up for your 10-week "Wine 101" course that starts in June. I can't wait to experience new wines with you and your staff!

I have heard great things about your store and look forward to meeting you in person!


Michele Thomas

This was excellent, informative and simple to understand. Thanks!

Debra Harper

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for sending the 5 Days to Expert Wine Tasting. I enjoyed reading it. I thought it was very informative. I have not actually done the steps yet.

I am looking forward to visiting Wines by Jennifer soon.

Thanks again,


I thought it was great! Thanks for sharing.

Scott Quinn
Kansas City, MO

I really enjoyed your "5 Days" course on wine tasting.

My daughter and I have visited Wines by Jennifer several times in the last year and we always have
such a pleasant experience each time. We really enjoy sampling different wines from around the world and really appreciate the fantastic setting you provide in Parkville.

Thanks again!

Marsha L. Ogle
Parsons, KS

My daughter sent me your information. She lives in Parkville, however, I live in South Padre Island, Texas. I do visit her 2-3 times a year and am looking forward to visiting your establishment.

As I am an occasional wine drinker, you have provided much information and in a pleasant way so people who enjoy wine can understand the basics in a very simple explanation. THANK YOU!!!

I look forward to future emails!!

Janet Myers
South Padre Island, TX

Hello Jennifer,

I thoroughly enjoyed the e-mailed wine tasting course. It is an awesome course for the "beginner". I forwarded the course to four people.

Thank you,

Tammy Graham
Overland Park, KS

GREAT CLASS -- Thanks!!!

Debra Wright

I thought the course was great. It shored up those things that I knew or thought I knew and gave me some new things to think about. I saved all five essays and intend to refer to them in the future to help me be a better wine enthusiast.


Leif Bahl


Thank for your sharing your "5 Days to Expert Wine Tasting" course. While I was familiar with all five steps, it was a great refresher course. It also provided some nice detail as to why we experience different tastes, smells, etc.

Thank you again and I look forward to visiting your shop again sometime soon.

Tamera Kovacs

I learned ALOT. It's a little bit more wine knowledge than I need, but all knowledge is good--right? I thought it was excellently organized. I'm sure I'll see you around!

Denice Carter

Loved the wine course - thanks!

Kay Torpey

Dear Jennifer,

I really liked the wine course--I found it to be concise and to the point.

I look forward to your wine tasting room!

Thank you,

Chris Walz
