Wine Training Courses & Certification Programs

Our Wine Essentials "Prep" programs offer students a stepping stone towards professional certifications and a first immersion in the wine country of their choice. These programs are designed for enthusiasts and your customer-facing team members who require specialized knowledge in a particular region, but who may not have the time or budget to delve into a Scholar or Master-Level program. There are no prerequisites for these programs. Your team is in for a virtual cultural journey to the country in question, all while they gain proficiency in the major wine-making regions, grape varieties and styles. 


Our Wine Scholar® Study and Certification programs offer wine professional and serious enthusiasts the opportunity to specialize in the wine country of their choice. These advanced wine education programs provides current, accurate and in-depth information on the wines France, Italy and Spain.

They are designed for advanced students of wine whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. Our Scholar programs are suited to customer-facing sales staff, leadership team members, buyers, wine educators, wine specialists and more. Individuals who follow these in-depth programs and pass the exam earn the French, Italian or Spanish Wine Scholar title and corresponding post-nominal, which may be incorporated into a professional signature (e.g. John Smith, FWS).

Currently, three flagship programs are available:
