Since 2011, San Francisco Wine School has been helping people of all levels break into the wine industry, advance their career or simply pursue their passion.  With the rapid increase in programs, students, and instructors and the opening of our new space, we have grown to become the largest wine school in the country.

After months of careful planning and renovation, we are thrilled to have moved into our gorgeous state-of-the-art 4,000 sq ft Wine Education Center located on the top floor of 415 Grand Avenue in downtown South San Francisco!  Read our press release...

Our Grand Opening Event Series was a huge success!  We loved celebrating our beautiful new facility and introducing the versatility of the wine education center to the public. For those that attended, we can't thank you enough for being a part of our celebration.  It meant so much to open our doors ceremoniously with you all in attendance.  Enjoy our Grand Opening Video to relive the Ribbon Cutting and Open House.  We look forward to seeing more of you in the future!
