Corporate and Private Wine Events

Private Wine Courses

We are happy to arrange private courses that fit both your educational needs and schedule. Whether you desire a WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) or CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine) certification for a private group or are interested in having us design a custom course for you, we can accommodate most requests. Please be aware that custom and private courses are available for an additional cost. For pricing and more information please contact us here.

We can also arrange private tastings at a selected venue or in your own home if desired. We advise a minimum party size of 10-12 guests for cost reasons. We can offer advice on themes and wines if you wish, or source wines to suit your own preference. These types of tastings typically last from 1.5 to 2 hours, but can be tailored to suit your requirements. Prices vary depending on the location, the number of guests, type of course, and the style and selection of wines desired.

Please email or call us at 855-513-9738 and someone from our Academy will be happy to discuss formats, themes, dates, locations, numbers, and budgets.
