French Wine Courses

The Academy has specialised in French wines for over 15 years and we offer both short regional courses and globally recognised qualifications.

The Academy is an approved centre for the delivery of the highly regarded French Wine Scholar program, offered by the Wine Scholar Guild. This study and certification program was developed with support of the French Ministry of Agriculture.

It is aimed at advanced students of wine whether professionals or serious wine hobbyists. The course, including extensive tastings, covers all major regions in France as well as some of the lesser known ones.
