our goals
Put Technology to Work for Your Operation.

To provide consistent and comprehensive tools to educate foodservice employees on wine, beer and spirits

To offer an on-demand solution- that can be used at a time to suit you, your business and your employees

To increase the overall beverage sales for our clients, while improving their customers'          experiences

To reduce training costs

To assist our clients in operating at the highest level of beverage sales and service





our philosophy
Do it right or do it twice.

Learning about wine, beer and spirits is a hands-on activity. However, to engage in a beverage-oriented discussion, a foodservice employee must possess basic knowledge that prepares him/her for the vocabulary, processes, service elements and food/wine pairing topics that are involved in alcohol beverage service. Vino 101 online courses provide a comprehensive and entertaining introductory beverage education for foodservice employees. We lay the foundation on which you can build with your operation's specific beverage offerings.

The beverage education of a foodservice employee is an on-going process. We see Vino 101 courseware as the critical first step in that progression.
