ADVANCED TASTING WORKSHOPS

NEXT WORKSHOP |  Fall 2019

Choose your own adventure!

Workshops are designed to further the students’ knowledge of wine through tasting and discussions. Each workshop will focus on a specific topic and all wines are tasted blind. Students will learn from experts such as certified sommeliers, viticulturist, winemakers and notable authors. 

Depending on the topic, workshops can range from 1-5 days, typically two hours per session. Select workshops will culminate in a written and blind tasting exam so we can evaluate each student’s progress and recommend next steps. This is not a certificate course. 

Students can prepare for these exercises by referring to the SSA Deductive Tasting Format.

All workshops are designed by Dylan York, SSA Principal. For more information please contact us at info@sommeliersocietyofamerica.org

  • Graduates* of the Sommelier Society of America’s Certificate program

  • Students pursuing certifications through other guilds such as the Court of Master Sommeliers and WSET.
