The WSET courses look pretty good on paper and at least where I live, the people doing the teaching are well regarded and/or hold an MW. The French Wine Scholar program also looks interesting but I think you'd want to make sure that the focus is on tasting and not just the geography/geology/history components. I thought the MS was mostly geared for industry people.

It's a fun little shop and I go every time I'm in Seattle. Also worth checking out is Vino Verité (http://vinoverite.com/main.html) in Capitol Hill. Very nice owner with a good selection including a number from Kermit Lynch.
Probably not easy to find outside of British Columbia, but here is a good example of what this emerging region can offer: a cool weather white with nice acidity for around $20.
Wow - that is a lot of Donnhoff love!
Probably one of my favorite producers now - I don't know about the 'S' bottling but I really like the weissburgunder and grauburgunders from Donnhoff - we had these two recently over dinner and didn't find them oaky in the least - maybe the age allowed them to integrate? Nevertheless, really enjoyable whites and very food friendly:
I'm really enjoying Juliet apples.
