I have known Sonal for many years and aside from being highly engaging, articulate, passionate and knowledgeable about all matters of wine, I find her entrepreneurial spirit, her in-depth knowledge and her professional approach to wine highly commendable. If there is an authoritative person I wish to consult about wine, it is Sonal I seek out; she is in a rare class of very few selected and talented wine enthusiasts who are difficult to find.

Editor & Entrepreneur
As an editor and a wine enthusiast, I knew a lot about wines, but studying with the Sonal Holland Wine Academy filled in all the gaps about the nuances of wine; the why’s and how’s, right from the grape to the glass.
Learning about wines at Sonal Holland Wine Academy has broadened and deepened my understanding of wine. I particularly like that Sonal’s knowledge goes beyond the textbook, and draws from her extensive experience and exposure to the subject.
