San Francisco Wine School Introduces New Certified Specialist of Wine Program


Date: 01/21/13

The San Francisco Wine School now offers a comprehensive preparation course for the prestigious Certified Specialist of Wine examination. The Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) credential represents the Society of Wine Educators’ (SWE) recognition that the holder has attained a broad base of knowledge about wine, equivalent to a mid-level wine professional. Candidates for this credential come from both inside and outside the wine industry with widely varying backgrounds. Like many other organizations’ credentials, this is generally a self-study program. San Francisco Wine School has been recognized by SWE as a Private Wine School Provider.

The nine-course series includes a class on tasting technique, chemistry and flaws, as well as courses surveying the world’s major wine producing regions. Tuition for the full series including the exam is $995, and single classes are $89 per class. Classes begin on March 20, and run until May 22, 2013. The CSW series is held on Wednesdays, from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. in South San Francisco.

San Francisco Wine School
The San Francisco Wine School’s mission is to provide world-class wine education and professional training for those seeking to advance their wine careers or those looking to change careers and begin with a serious credential. Studious consumers are more than welcome. In addition to the CSW certification course, the school offers French Wine Scholar (FWS) and their own trademarked California Wine Appellation Specialist (CWAS) certification program.
