Winewise courses – Wine Scholar Guild


The Wine Scholar™ Study and Certification programs offer students of wine to specialize in the wines and wine regions of the three major wine producing countries: France, Italy and Spain.

Why WineWise offers the Wine Scholar Guild qualifications?
WineWise supports the wine professional to specialize and gain international wine and/or spirit qualifications. The WSG qualifications are designed for WSET Level 3 and Diploma graduates or other people who graduated from another long term wine education (Syntra, CVO, Vinoloog) and want to gain more in-depth knowledge.

WineWise is the WSG program provider for Belgium and the Netherlands. These in-depth wine education programs provides current, accurate and in-depth information on the wines and wine regions of the studied country. The program is a combination of e-learning modules, review quizzes and tasting workshops provided by WineWise. All online tuition and tasting workshops are in English. For the French Wine Scholar the student can ask for a French study guide and exam for an extra cost of 100 € (VAT included).

All the classes start with an online session to explain how everything works. After that session, there are 4 x 4 hours of tasting workshops. Be aware that you need to study in between the classes at home.

WineWise can also come to your company to offer these programs for your staff and/or your customers. More information?
