Glancy Wine Online gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and your network with wine professionals and serious enthusiasts from all over the world. Each week you'll tackle a new subject in our virtual classroom through inspiring lectures, group discussions, and in-depth tasting assignments. In many ways, because your instructor will require more participation and group discussion, the Online Program is more engaging than the regular classroom format.

Program participation includes tasting, or having access to, up to 16 wines. Wines may vary dependent upon selection, location, and availability. Purchases by the glass or half bottle are recommended when available. Local tasting groups are encouraged!
