"The Wine School is a Beloved Philadelphia Institution"
Distinctive Homes Magazine, January 2009
Earn a complete wine education in a single semester. The Core Wine Program combines our award-winning Foundation and Intermediate programs into a unified wine education experience. Plus, the Core Program student saves $400 in tuition by taking both programs in the same semester.
In the Foundation portion of the program, students will learn the techniques and master the knowledge needed to become extraordinary wine tasters. Graduates are able to identity major wine varietals in a blind tasting: a skill many seasoned sommeliers cannot accomplish.
In the Intermediate section, students learn about the intricacies of the ever expanding world of wine. Included in the program is the chance to master the wine styles, climates and varietals of all the major wine producing countries.
This wine course is held on Tuesdays from July 13th until August 31st. Classes are held from 4:30-9:30 in the evening, including a dinner break.
