Accelerated Sommelier Wine Course
Earn your Sommelier Pin in a single week! A wine-intensive program that pours 45 years of collective experience into six days of educational bliss. This program made the Wine School of Philadelphia a powerhouse in the wine trade.
Not only is this a fantastic adventure into wine, but graduating students earn their L3 Sommelier certification and pin!
Wine Instructor Training
The teacher training program is a vital part of our Advanced Sommelier curriculum. It’s required for all students seeking their Le Maitre du Vin accreditation, commonly referred to as master sommelier certification.
This course goes far beyond simply teaching about wine. It gives you the core skills to flourish in any professional setting. University Professors and Fortune 500 CEOs even take this course. Our most successful graduates take this program.
Advanced Winemaking Certification
Our winemaking program is a six-month program where you make wine from grapes (yes, actual grapes) which we truck in from the west coast. We have brought in Zinfandel from Lodi and Carmenere from Columbia Valley in previous years.
Students work in small teams to produce their barrel of red wine with the assistance of a Napa-trained winemaker.
Italian Wine Specialist™
Should we even mention our Advanced Italian Program? One of the most popular of our sommelier classes, this program only has six spots left, and it doesn’t start until January 2023! A tour-de-force of Italian wines and wine culture. This program goes far beyond the well-known wine regions and explores the back-roads that even master sommeliers haven’t explored.
Master in Wine™ Certification
The program is a student-centered exploration of the greatest wines in the world. This program features Bordeaux, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Barolo, Brunello di Montalcino, Napa Valley.
Food & Wine Scholar™
The program takes what you learned in the L2 Foundation Program and expands those concepts into the food and wine pairing arena. You will learn how to use your sensory training to create pitch-perfect pairings for everyone. A fun and mind-bending program developed by the only university academic to ever work as both an executive chef and a professional winemaker.
