Certified Wine Instructor

The Wine Instructor diploma is the basic building block of the entire Guild wine educator program through the wine school. The goal is to develop individuals who have the desire, teaching capability, presentation skills, and appropriate attitude to successfully teach others about wine.

Prerequisites are the Advanced Wine Course and the Advanced Wine & Food Pairing Course for the CWI Diploma program.

This course is designed to develop the skills to teach a college or trade school level introductory class on wine. This course was designed by MWE's as well as Guild educators with Master's Degrees in Education.

The Guild has members who are experts at course development, test writing, and all aspects of teaching.

Once you have completed the Certified Wine Educator course you can study to become a Senior Wine Educator and then the Master Wine Educator. You must register for both the Advanced Wine and Advanced Wine and Food Pairing Courses as well as the Professional Wine Instructor Course.

If for any reason a class is canceled we will phone or e-mail you 48 hours prior to the start of the class. If a class is canceled at the last minute due to bad weather (this is very rare) we will reschedule the class. However, if a class is held and you decide not to attend because you believe the weather is bad than it will be treated as a no-show. It is highly recommended that you register early, your credit card will not be charged until seven days in advance of the course. We must have a minimum students registered in order to form a course. If you are traveling from out of town to attend, please do not make arrangements until two weeks in advance of the course.
