You will be part of an exclusive group to attend our 2nd wine school. Successful completion of the course will earn you Level 1 certification as a certified Californian Wine Ambassador.

The course will run over two days from Sunday 10th– Monday 11th February 2019 and will guide you through the most important wines styles and regions of California, as well as providing an insight into its greatest vineyards, people and the sustainable farming and business practices that increasingly underpin wine production across the Golden State.  You will come away with an outstanding core knowledge base about Californian wine.

We are delighted to partner with The Vineyard Cellars(the UK’s sole importer completely dedicated to Californian wine) and their partner business The Vineyard at Stockcross luxury hotel as our venue host and accommodation provider. 

The program will include lectures, course materials and blind tastings over the two days, with a short exam at the end of Day 2.
