San Francisco Wine School strives to open up the world of wine to serious students and enthusiasts everywhere while helping people of all levels break into the wine industry, advance their career, or simply pursue their passions. Founded by Master Sommelier and Certified Wine Educator David Glancy, San Francisco Wine School is the largest wine school in the U.S., offering the most thoughtful approach to wine study. Classes are taught in our state of the art wine education center and our cutting edge virtual classroom by industry-leading instructors from all major educational disciplines.


San Francisco Wine School’s curriculum features the best content in the business: expert course materials, carefully conceived wine flights, and in-depth blind tasting exercises designed to engage students, illuminate course content and enhance learning. Our brand new sunlight-filled Wine Education Center is conveniently located just 5 minutes from San Francisco International Airport. It boasts 16-ft high coved ceilings, eight 12-ft tall arched windows, and gorgeous 180 degree views of the San Bruno Mountains, South San Francisco City Hall and the San Francisco Bay, making it the perfect place to enjoy classes, industry seminars and tastings and host a wide variety of private events.

After David Glancy, MS, CWE created the groundbreaking Certified Sommelier Program at Professional Culinary Institute (now ICC) he was repeatedly asked:

  • What certifications do I need to stay competitive?
  • Which credentialing bodies are most respected in the industry?
  • What’s the smartest way to prepare for exams?
  • Who are the best instructors?
  • Should I study and work at the same time?

As a result, David founded San Francisco Wine School in 2011. He knew these students needed a new kind of school—one that allowed students to achieve the highest level of wine certification through an accessible, modular path of study.  This modular path allows each student to create a unique educational experience to meet their goals.
