Wines by Region: Wine Studies Certificate Program

Explore wine regions from around the world each semester.

This program kicks off with Italy in spring 2020. Spain, France, Dalmatian Coast, Mediterranean Islands, Georgia, South Africa, Australia and more will follow in years to come. (By popular demand, each semester will also include a sub-region of California.)

Join wine educators as they delve into the wines specific to each territory. Learn about the geology, climate and cultural traditions that influence these locales. Along the way, instructors will share stories and relevant history and partake in the gastronomical delights endemic to each area.

The program includes all materials, a discussion about the rich culture and traditions indigenous to the region, the wines, and a wine and food pairing experience to round out the afternoon.

Take all four classes in sequence, or only those that fit your schedule. Classes are $110 each, or $399 for all four. Earn a certificate when you complete the series. 

Thank you to The Boardroom for supplying delicious charcuterie boards and Libation Wine Bar where students will receive discounts on the wines featured in each course.

While you're learning about Italian wines, learn to speak Italian by taking the Italian Language class offered this spring by Extended Education.
