Earn your sommelier pin and gain a complete wine education in a single semester. The Core Wine Course combines our Foundation and Intermediate programs into a unified wine education experience.

Plus, the Core Wine Course will save you a sizable amount of tuition. Individually, the Foundation and Intermediate programs cost hundreds of dollars more.

In the Foundation portion of the program, students will learn the techniques and master the knowledge needed to become extraordinary wine tasters. In addition, graduates can identify major wine varietals in a blind tasting: a major feat for any wine professional.

In the Intermediate section, students learn about the intricacies of the ever-expanding world of wine. The program includes the chance to master the wine styles, climates, and varietals of all the major wine-producing countries.

Sundays, October 10th to November 28th from 2:30 pm – 7 pm.
