California Wine Classes

Did you know that California is the fourth largest producer of wine in the world? Learn about the Golden State's rich tapestry of wine regions, grapes, and key producers, as well as how diversity in geography and climate influence wine production. Experience guided tastings of wines that exemplify the characteristics of the region you’re studying — whether it’s Mendicino in the north, Ramona Valley in the south, or one of the many appellations in between. Our industry-leading instructors cover the classics (looking at you, Napa Valley) and introduce some hidden gems. 

If you’re new to California wines, start with our Intro class to learn the basics.  For a deeper dive, check out our California Wine Appellation Specialist® CWAS certification program.
