Our 10-session Certified Specialist of Wine program was created by Master Sommelier David Glancy to fully prepare students for the notoriously rigorous CSW exam. David knows CSW better than most. He is one of only 12 Master Sommeliers in the world to achieve Society of Wine Educators' top credential—Certified Wine Educator. As well as being a Certified Wine Educator, Master Sommelier David Glancy also sat on the Board of Directors for the Society of Wine Educators for 3 consecutive terms.
The program covers wine tasting, terminology, composition, chemistry, flaws, viticulture, enology, labels, laws and wine regions of the world. In addition, students will receive the official Society of Wine Educators' CSW Exam Study Guide, exam credit and more. See what's included below.
