Wine Education Seminar Presented By:

Brian Dynda – Class Act Wines

Brian Dynda is the Co-Founder of Class Act Wines, a company set to break into the Las Vegas wine market. Currently he conducts virtual wine tasting and education events, with plans to expand to an in-person format.

Brian has had an interesting career path, starting out as an aerospace engineer in New York, eventually relocating to California to be an actor and entertainer. You will hear him say, “With life, comes change”, and change it does. A recent UNLV graduate with degrees in both Business and Entrepreneurship, he looks to a future in the wine industry. It is at UNLV that his formal wine education started, while taking classes with a master sommelier. After passing the introductory sommelier course, he continued his wine education with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) passing level 2 with the highest honors, now poised to take his level 3 WSET exam. Brian may be a recently accredited wine student, but he has been tasting and collecting wine for over 20 years.  He is proud to be part of the century club, which means he has tried at least 100 different varietals from around the world. He hopes to achieve Hexavin status; trying 600 varietals.

Benchmark Philosophies

  • “There are way too many wines in the world to drink bad wine.”
  • “To me, wine is this amazing synergy between art and science.”
  • “When you break down flavors in wine it’s nothing more than things like dimethyl sulfide but it’s so much cooler to say hints of black currant and blackberries!”
  • “Wine is for everyone and should be approachable, not elitist.”

Andrew “A.J” DeLouisa - Wine Professional

A key part of our organization, A.J co-hosts national wine classes for Class Act Wines. Studying wine professionally for a few years now, he is focused on the Court of Master Sommeliers (CMS) program. Currently he is aiming for his certified diploma with CMS and believes “It’s never too late to start a new adventure”.  In addition to his career of 24 years as a master locksmith, he is part of an improvisational performance group, and has been a stage artist since he was a child.  Andrew believes anyone can appreciate wine, and everyone should have access to the knowledge surrounding it. “I only cook with wine that I can drink at the same time!” - A.J
