Wine     Educational    
The New World covers all of those countries “discovered” after 1492. This is because wine is a Eurocentric invention and was not consumed in any New World country until the Europeans arrived. There is one exception: the “Nuevo-New World.” An in-depth knowledge of New World wine is critical to the wine professional and serious wine student.

This is a required course for the Level III Certification. If you would like to take a detailed, technical course on New World wine you can take this course without being a Level III student. However, we strongly recommend that you first take the Guild Certification Seminar before attempting a Level III regional course.

This course covers the following New World Countries:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Mexico
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Chile
  • Argentina
  • Uruguay and the rest of South America
  • China and the far east (the “Neuvo-New World”}
  • South Africa

You will also learn about:

  • Geography and climate
  • Wine production techniques
  • How to use vintage data, by region or country
  • Wine character data, by appellation
  • You will receive more than 600 pages of material, specifically designed for this course and taste about 100 wine
The 11-week course meets from 6:00PM to 10:00PM once a week Tuesdays October 2nd - December 11th for a total of 44 contact hours. Course fees are $1900. Cost of the course includes registration fees, handouts, wine, and instruction. We taste older vintage wines in this course.
