Spanish Wine Scholar

It was an excellent course. I enjoyed the culture and history aspect, as well as the wine knowledge, as it enlightened me on all things Spanish.    See our spanish wine courses.

Jen Hoskote

French Wine Scholar Program

French Wine Scholaris a good course for people who want to discover or love French wine.The course is well structured and comes with a lecture-style class taught by respected wine professionals. There is a tasting component, a good in-depth course book and fantastic online materials where students can immerse themselves in the world of French wine. This course is by no means easy. It demands discipline, dedication, time and passion to achieve a good result, but the reward is worth the effort.   See our french wine courses.

Professional Sommelier's Course 

What I like about the course is that it is very thorough. It covers everything from viticulture and winemaking to professional evaluation of wine, as well as beer and spirits. It really laid the foundations for me in a career as Sommelier.   See our sommelier courses.

WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits

The diploma is a life changing experience, not only for the knowledge gained but the people you meet along the way. Undertake at own risk but know that when you finish, you will be stronger, wiser and have met some incredible folk. Just remember, a tasting group is a must and essays and conclusions are the key. See our WSET courses.

Anna Mantchakidi

WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits

I have completed alot of study in my time but have never undertaken something as challenging as the Diploma in terms of knowledge, discipline and time commitment.  Commuting from Melbourne over two years threw an extra dimension to my studies but I have no regrets.  

The Diploma to date has offered me the greatest professional satisfaction.  Guest lecturers came from specialty fields within the industry which really assisted the delivery of so many facets of the industry.

Meeting other like-minded professionals and keeping in contact has been a bonus. I highly recommend the course and Sydney Wine Academy.  See our WSET courses.
