Come learn about wine in Napa Valley from the wine education provider of choice for internationally recognized wine certifications.

You might consider yourself a wine enthusiast. Or you might have aspirations to be a Master of Wine someday. There is no better way to get your wine education than totally immersing yourself in the subject. We take you outside of the standard classroom and into winery and food centers that place you closer to the subject matter at hand. Learn from the experts in as few as 2 days and receive internationally recognized wine certification.

  • Courses are conducted at a working winery, which provides visual, on-site instruction. Students go into the vineyard to discuss subjects like trellising systems and sustainable vineyard practices or venture into the cellar for their review of winemaking procedures.
  • Instructors who are energetic and knowledgeable with decades of experience in the wine industry and will guide you through the administrative and learning process of certification.
  • Classroom wines specifically chosen to be representative of subject and regions covered, and brands that are recognizable or of quality to make best showcase a variety and region.
  • Instructor availability for questions by phone and email.

We are proud to offer the WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) and SWE (Society of Wine Educators) certification programs.


  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
