2.5 hours (6:30 – 9:00 p.m.), $55
Program consists of a 2.5-hour class that includes the following:
– Instruction on the history, geography, climate, viticulture, wine making, and wine styles. When studying the styles of sherry, students will learn about their differences, pairings, and best ways to serve.
– A tasting of all the basic styles (Finos, Amontillados, Olorosos, and Sweets, 6 wines)
– A test (28 questions) graded after course to award the Certified Sherry Wine Specialist recognition to those with a passing score of 20.
The Certificate of Achievement will be signed by both Lustau’s CEO and César Saldaña, Director of the Regulatory Council of Jerez. They will be numbered and a list of those that passed the course will be shared with the Regulatory Council. A Certificate of Recognition will be issued to those that do not achieve the passing grade but only signed by Lustau. We do encourage students to retake the exam at a later date there are no restrictions as to how many times they may submit.
