Free online classes do not include the sommelier courses at the National Wine School. We also do not stream private wine club events.

Upcoming Virtual Classes

Our original wine club started in 2005 and was open only to Master-level sommeliers and Level 5 wine course graduates. Known as the Cru Club, it was an elite institution with a remarkable membership. In just a few years it spawned a California wine club, a natural wine club, and a non-profit agency.

However, we sought to include a more diverse experience; we slowly changed the membership requirements over the years. We expected to get resistance to the idea of allowing all wine lovers to be accepted, but most of the original members loved the new inclusive ethos and remain with us today.

During COVID, we transitioned to become an online wine club, which was a new and wonderful experience for all of us. We learned enough about video and audio to develop online wine courses for the National Wine School! To this day, we offer live online classes for all our members, streamed from our classroom in 4K video feeds and professional-grade audio.

Publications like Philadelphia Magazine hail the wine club as one of the best wine events in Philadelphia. We focus on fun but smart wine events. Our club does have a reputation for having brilliant wine people, and there is an expectation that everyone brings amazing wines to our events. To help out our members, we give them a 2o0 to 25% discount on all classes and courses they attend while members.
