The Capital Wine School was founded by Jay Youmans, MW with the vision of offering the highest quality wine education and tasting instruction available in the Washington, DC area.
Our classes, courses, and events are fun and unpretentious, yet offer the depth of knowledge and insight sought by those wanting to learn more about wine. We will not simply teach you about wine, we will help you understand why wines differ and how to describe these differences.
We offer the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Courses: WSET Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4; Wine Scholar Guild: French Wine Scholar, Italian Wine Scholar, and Spanish Wine Scholar. In addition, we hold wine tastings and classes on the world's most important grapes, regions, and styles
