Our 10-session Certified Specialist of Wine CSW program was created by Master Sommelier David Glancy to fully prepare students, who want to become wine specialists, for the notoriously rigorous CSW exam. David, a Certified Wine Educator CWE, knows CSW better than most. He is one of only 12 Master Sommeliers in the world to achieve this top credential from the Society of Wine Educators' besides being a CWE, 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.
