Sommelier Sensory Training Sessions: A Journey Through Aroma and Flavor

We are proud to introduce our most-requested and exclusive offering: the Sommelier Sensory Training Sessions. These sessions culminate with collaborative expertise from the National Wine School, the Wine School of Philadelphia, and Keith Wallace, our founder and a renowned wine expert.

Customized Scent Kits: At the heart of these sessions are our specialized scent kits, meticulously developed based on several trade secrets. Each kit is tailored to the subject of the class, featuring 6-8 handcrafted scents that are professionally packaged. These kits are designed to enhance your sensory experience and deepen your understanding of wine’s complex aromas.

Diverse Class Topics: Our classes cover a range of topics, each focused on a specific aspect of wine tasting. You can explore classes dedicated to identifying oak scents in wine, discerning fruit flavors in reds, and uncovering unique scents in white wines. Additionally, we offer sessions on the varietal fingerprints of classic grape varieties, complementing our Core Sommelier Course or serving as a refreshing overview of classic wines.

Flexible Class Formats: These sessions are available both in person and online to accommodate your preference and location. For online attendees, you will need to purchase specific wines and the scent kit in advance. A Zoom link will be provided for you to join the live class, streamed in 4K with high-definition audio. If you choose to attend in person, you have the option to purchase your own scent kit or borrow one for the class (note that shared kits may be necessary).

Designed for Serious Wine Learners: This class is specially crafted for members who are passionate about wine education and eager to learn every nuance of wine tasting. It’s an opportunity to deepen your knowledge and elevate your sensory skills.

For Online Students: For online students, along with the scent kit, you will need the following wines: California Chardonnay (Oaked & Malo), Unoaked Chardonnay,a American oak-aged red wine, French oak-aged red wine. We strongly recommend investing in a Coravin System so you do not have to open these wines for tasting.

Important Notes: Please be aware that space in these sessions is limited, and they are offered at cost. Due to the exclusive nature and high demand, we are unable to accept cancellations. \\

Join us for these sensory training sessions and embark on an enlightening journey into the world of wine aromas and flavors. This is your chance to engage with wine on a profound level and enhance your sommelier skills.
