SOMMDAY SCHOOL™ WORKSHOPS

Where future sommeliers come to learn the essentials of tasting, service, and much more…

Our hands-on SommDay School™ workshops are designed for students in the food, beverage, and hospitality industry who are just starting their sommelier education journey, and ideal for those looking to further improve their service and tasting skills. These day-long intensive workshops were developed by Master Sommelier Tim Gaiser and the Napa Valley Wine Academy. The goal of each 6-hour session is aimed at helping waitstaff, bartenders, F&B managers, wine buyers, winery tasting room staff, and anyone else working in the food and wine industry to hone their tasting and service skills, as well as better prepare those interested in pursuing wine certification exams such as Society of Wine Educators and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust examinations. SommDay School™ Workshops are also ideal for the student who wants to continue to study, taste, and practice their service techniques in preparation for sommelier exams. For anyone outside the industry–the avid wine enthusiast–you will also benefit from these workshops as they offer a taste of the life of a sommelier.
