Beginner to intermediate level programming can be taken in an online format. However, all Advanced level programs must be taken at an accredited university or wine school.
Level 1 Sommelier
From grape to bottle to table, you will be exposed to essential wine knowledge. What are the nine essential grapes? How do you parse a French wine label? What is the proper way to taste wine? What are the myths that everyone believes, but shouldn’t? Can you pair a light red wine with fish?
Level 2 Sommelier
There is one skill that all professional winemakers and sommeliers possess: blind tasting. Learn to separate the layers of flavor of wine into its core components: primary fruit, winemaking techniques (including barrel aging), differences between regions, and varietal fingerprints.
Level 3 Sommelier
Wine is a global phenomenon. From New York to Hong Kong to London to Mumbai, wine is an essential ingredient to both business and pleasure. To engage in the the world of sommeliers and winemakers, you need to know all the essential wines.
