Sommelier Certification

National Wine School

I highly recommend the Core Program for people who have a general interest in food and wine, as well as those considering pursuing a degree or certification. As a professional chef and cooking instructor, this course helped me make more educated food and wine pairing suggestions. The school’s unique approach doesn’t rely on route memorization of names and regions. Instructors engage your senses so you don’t just learn about the wines sampled. You learn ‘an approach’ to tasting any wine and to deducing regions, flavors and pairings. I’ll be hanging on to my class notebook forever.
