This unique online learning experience is not your typical self-study program! Each program in the Glancy eWine School includes university style curriculum with personalized online instruction, engaging student interaction and creative tasting assignments expertly designed to bring the classroom to you!  

Each week, students will tackle a new subject in our online classroom viewing Virtual Lectures by Master Sommelier David Glancy and reading supplemental materials on their own schedule and at their own pace.  They'll also engage in lively chat board discussions with their industry leading instructor and fellow classmates and complete weekly quizzes and in-depth tasting assignments receiving instructor feedback to hone their skills.

Personalized online instruction
Your industry leading instructor will personally connect with you and your classmates in the virtual classroom, guiding you through the curriculum, answering your questions, providing feedback and taking an active role in the class discussions.

Our virtual class materials are designed to accommodate all different learning styles and schedules. Read the slides and articles, listen to lectures, watch the videos, view the maps - pause, skip ahead, go back, jump to a different section – all with the click of a mouse.  Challenge your learning with weekly quizzes designed to prepare you for the final exam.

Our online programs are designed to promote engagement with the other members of the class. Students gain a new network of wine professionals and serious enthusiasts from all over the world. In many ways, our online students are more connected than those who meet in a traditional program. Weekly discussions are known to get very lively and because there are no set classroom hours, students engage much more than they would during a traditional class. Some classes even decide to come together from far and wide just to meet in person at the end of the program.

Each tasting assignment is designed to impart the learning objectives for each region of study and has flexible parameters to allow for differences in wine availability in your area. Get to know your local wine shop, tasting bar, your own cellar, or hit the road to see the region in person! Locating wines that meet the assignment criteria is half the fun and enriches the learning experience.
