We will be soon holding wine classes at a winery where our students can see, feel, sense and touch the grapes, experience the romance of wine, meet and greet the vineyard owner and staff. The opportunity to be taught in such an ideal environment is absolutely fantastic, we are delighted to be able to take our students on this field trip. For more details contact us. The course duration will be two nights at the winery and meals will be provided. It is recommended that students take their own transport to the winery.
The BC Wine School offers both certification courses and thematic tasting seminars. Whether you are a trade professional seeking formal qualification or a passionate enthusiast wanting to enhance your knowledge of the dynamic wines and spirits that are being produced around the world, the BC Wine School has a course for you.
Our signature certification courses are developed by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). Founded in 1969, WSET is a UK based organization and a global leader in wine and spirits education. Certification from WSET is formally and internationally recognized in the wine hospitality and retail trades.
As an Approved Programme Provider by WSET, the BC Wine School currently offers five WSET certification courses – Level 1 Foundation in Wines, Level 1 Foundation in Spirits, Level 2 Intermediate in Wines and Spirits, Level 2 Professional in Spirits and Level 3 Advanced in Wines and Spirits
For the enthusiastic consumer, the BC Wine School also provides non-qualification courses for pleasure and knowledge enhancement. Our thematic tasting seminars, lead by industry professionals and experts, provide an intensive look at specific styles and types of wines and spirits from around the world. It’s a great way to taste your way through a “snapshot” selection of products that are currently being offered on the market. In-depth discussion and a selection of food are to accompany each seminar.
No matter what your level of interest is, the BC Wine School has a program for you. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
