We were fortunate enough to welcome Michael here on the island of Aruba during the week of August 28, were the Master Sommelier hosted an exciting Wine Boot Camp. The Boot Camp consisted out of 40 participants, a group of diverse people working in the wine industry on Aruba. Michael’s intense Boot Camp was very exciting and educative, participants were amazed with all the knowledge gained. Michael is one of only 15 people in the world that holds both the Master Sommelier diploma from the Court of Master Sommelier as well as a Certified Wine Educator diploma from the Society of Wine Educators. We are very thankful for Michael’s visit. Participants surely will put in practice all the knowledge gained during this informative Wine Boot Camp. We want to thank Michael Jordan for visiting us and leaving us with an abundance of new wine knowledge.
