I’m currently a Business Student at a four year college in central Pennsylvania. My family has been operating a small winery for the past ten years and I want to help grow the business once i graduate. So I wanted to ask how beneficial wine classes would be for someone like myself who wants to enter this specific industry? Also what do Somm Certificates do for future job placement, in terms of job opportunity?

Hi Lee,

Thank you for contacting us.

This would be a beneficial program for you. Our graduates now include several winemakers who are working locally and around the world. We provide the basics of varietal correctness and winemaking in the Foundation program, and then present a survey of the major wine regions and their unique grape varieties in the Intermediate.

It is a unique curriculum because it was developed by a UC Davis winemaker, focuses solely on wine (not beers and spirits) and benefits anyone who is looking to work in the wine world from sommelier to wine writer to importing wine.

The certification is beneficial because it demonstrates proficiency in the subject matter. It is also a good motivator to get everything out of the weekly classes knowing that there are exams at the end.

Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.

Cheers,
Philip
