Online Sommelier Course

Would you dedicate your Sunday afternoons to the study of wine? Would you enjoy an immersive eight-week experience with our top sommelier-instructors? If so, you are in the right place

The CORE program covers many nuanced subjects, most of which are unavailable at any other school or any other wine course. For this reason, this is a required course for both novices and seasoned wine professionals.

How exactly does an online wine program work? The basic framework is typical for every school and university: online classes held via an HD video feed, supplemented by online education materials.

What differentiates our programming is what happens in those classes. We don’t just lecture. Each class is a series of wine tastings, just like our in-person wine courses. We keep our attendance to the same numbers we typically have in a classroom, to ensure everyone gets personal attention. We offer a comprehensive list of great and affordable wines to use during class.

Plus, each student receives a personalized sensory training kit. We have been running online wine courses now for three semesters, and have developed the technology and skills that can train and certify sommeliers in a single month.

Anyone who dreams of having your own winery should attend the Core program at the Wine School of Philadelphia

The Core Online Sommelier Course includes two sections of classes. The first section is titled “The Foundation Course”, and the second is called “The Intermediate Wine Course.”

In the Foundation section, we will lead you through a gauntlet of corks, and you will emerge with a sommelier’s zeal. We carefully train our students to use their senses to unravel the complex flavors of wine. The specific scents that identify grape varietals, the scents that emerge from different styles of winemaking. These are the layers of flavors that our students explore with ease.

The Intermediate section takes a panoramic view of the world’s vineyards. Every major wine region is explored: the grapes, the history, and the culture are all embraced. We feel it isn’t enough to just know the information but to understand it in the context of the world. The world of wine is interconnected in so many ways, and in this class, we connect those dots.

The essential wine course. Nothing else compares.
