    Master-Level program help wine educators to provide better classroom experiences for their students

    "When combined with the immersion study trips  (I did both Burgundy and Champagne) it shows that you as a teacher have both the written and physical experience of these very special places." Mike Lee


    "I become more comfortable to discuss, teach, and elaborate on deep details of that wine region with confidence.  Even details I forgot over time I could easily remember upon a quick review." Paul Giudici


    "I highly recommend a Master Level Certification in a subject you are passion about because taking it to the next level gives you an enormous confidence when speaking about it." Katherine McEachnie, FWS,  DipWSET, CSW IWSC Judge & Canadian Ambassador 


    "I can definitely offer a better classroom experience! Not only do I have a deeper understanding of the regions, I also have resources that I can share with my students in order to share my knowledge with them. I have specific storied and anecdotes to help connect-the-dots for them with the regions. They love it!" Tanisha Townsend, CSS, CSW, FWS Wine & Spirits Educator/Consultant at Girl Meets Glass
