Daniel’s teaching classes were very important for me as they were my first educational steps in wine. I passed the WSET2 a few years ago and I was very lucky to have Daniel as a teacher.
His professionalism and teaching methods inspired me to stay and to progress in the wine business. It would be a big pleasure to have other courses with him!

As most Chinese students, I’m very shy. Last summer I took the WSET 2 course in Paris with Daniel Henderson, he is really a nice teacher, he always encourage me to talk about my viewpoint, and make me to be confident, finally, I got a score 94, because of Daniel, I fall in love with wine, and I decided to change my specialty, this year I will be a doctor student in wine making technology. Thank you Daniel.
I went to Daniel’s WSET level 2 class in 2015. During the training, he impressed me with his knowledge of wine tasting and his passion of terroir. He is very pedagogue and explained the techniques of fabricating fine wines very well. He owns and runs a vineyard in the region of Loire Valley. Due to the confidence in his expertise in terroir and winemaking, of course accumulated through the training program, I personally invited him to do a technique audit of a vineyard in Bordeaux before I decided to purchase it with my husband. Daniel helped us diagnosed the domain and gave us lots of precious insights before the acquisition. This reinforced my impression of his expertise. I recommend Daniel to you, if you want to explore the wine world in both knowledge and passion.
I was fortunate enough to have Daniel as my instructor for WSET I in Paris and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. He made the course fun and approachable for everyone while balancing the diverse mix of experience levels in our group. I especially like that Daniel possesses first hand knowledge in all aspects of wine from service to wine making and viticulture – his personal accounts added another level to the class that I really benefited from. I would gladly seek out future courses instructed by him – highly recommend!
Daniel accompagne le Chateau de Chaintres depuis un peu plus de 18 mois en tant que consultant.
Outre ses grandes qualités humaines et son sérieux, ce que j’apprécie tout particulièrement chez lui, c’est sa très forte capacité à résoudre de problèmes et à nous conseiller dans plusieurs champs d’activités à la fois. Son expérience à l’international, commerciale et ses très bonnes connaissances techniques de la viticulture ainsi que la vinification lui permettent d’être le partenaire idéal pour accompagner le développement d’un domaine vinicole à taille humaine. Il s’est très bien adapté à l’équipe et a su créer en peu de temps, un climat de confiance en apportant une vraie valeur ajoutée.
Daniel has accompanied the Chateau de Chaintres for the last 18 months as a consultant. In addition to his human qualities and his work ethic, what I appreciate particularly is his capacity to resolve problems and to consult across various areas of activity. His international sales experience and his mastery of viticulture and cellar techniques make him the ideal partner to accompany a vineyard of “human scale” such as ours. He adapted well to the team, and was able, in a short period, to earn our confidence and create real added value for the domaine.

Daniel is not just a good teacher, he is a guide who leads you through the world of wine. There is no right or wrong in his classes when it comes to tasting wine. He listened to your opinion and tries to make you see different aspects of wine as well. As for the theoretical part, he explains it in a very approachable manner and makes you understand the reasons behind them. He is a very helpful and inspiring person in general. I really enjoyed WSET I and II classes with him and I am willing to do WSET III in the nearest future. (WSET II, July 2018 in Paris)
Je suis œnologue, je travaille depuis 4 ans en collaboration avec Daniel Henderson. J’apprécie sa capacité d’écoute, ses qualités humaines et relationnelles, ainsi que son talent pour cerner une personnalité́.
Les échanges sont toujours constructifs, cordiaux et marqué par une dimension positive. J’apprécie également son désir constant d’apprendre ainsi que sa dégustation sans compromis.
I am the Oenologist for the Domaine de la Gauterie, and have worked with Daniel for the last 4 years. I appreciate his ability to listen, his human (relational) qualities, and in particular his ability to work with different personalities.
Our exchanges are always constructive, cordial and marked by a positive dimension. I equally appreciate his constant desire to learn and his uncompromising tasting skills.
In 2018 I asked Daniel to accompany me in creating La Condesa’s wine program, both by-the-glass and bottles, as well as to create a bespoke wine experience to accompany my wine pairing menus.
After a period of testing the menu, Daniel held several training sessions for myself and the team. We evaluated many recommended wines, working together to find those that we agreed were the best fits. Daniel pushed us to go deeper than we had imagined, decomposing the dishes down to the individual flavors and how they matched the wines. The result was a unique wine list matching my cuisine, allowing us flexibility in our service but also precise pairings with the varied ingredients used in the kitchen.
Daniel’s list spans many different countries, giving us a unique advantage amongst our competition, often heavily France-focused. His intimate knowledge of the wines, their characteristics and the economics required to create a profitable and appealing wine program were of great help to the restaurant.
