If you are new to the study of wine — or simply new to the Wine School of Philadelphia — this class is for you. Here, you will experience each of the Wine School’s hallmarks:dispelling industry rumors, banishing popular wine myths, and delivering information in an easy-to-understand manner. Developed by a U.C. Davis winemaker and honed over ten years of teaching experience, it represents a singular view of wine education. Allow us to share it with you!
At the Wine School, we focus on quality over quantity. Each wine list is curated by a top sommelier-instructor and often features rare bottles from the Director's private cellar. Just as important, the School does not promote or accept funds from national wine brands. This makes our offerings unique, not just in Philadelphia, but throughout the United States.
Along with our unique wine education classes, the Wine School offers a full academic schedule, including a diploma program. We have administered our program for over a decade and have developed courses for major universities. Graduates go on to become winemakers, sommeliers, authors, and industry leaders.
