Wine Appreciation Certificate | Print |

We no longer offer a Wine Appreciation certificate. This material is now offered under a new name, Sommelier Fundamentals. The Wine Appreciation course remains as a stand-alone course. Students who successfully complete Wine Appreciation and then decide to continue in the Sommelier or Sommelier Fundamentals program are freed from the prerequisite requirements of the Sommelier program courses.

Additional Information

You can complete the program by attending one class per week (3 hours) in the evening or on weekends. It will take the average student 18 to 24 months to complete the entire program. In addition to this certification, a student can choose to transfer credits to the Sommelier program and with an additional four levels, gain the prestigious designation of Certified Sommelier.
