Whether you are a novice only interested in increasing your wine knowledge for pleasure, or whether you are an active member of the trade wanting to take your career to the next level, The Texas Wine School has a class for you! Many of our classes are one-time classes; a two-hour night out in which you will learn about and taste through a variety of wines. These classes are suitable for students of all skill levels. Each class will introduce and utilize a systematic approach to tasting wine.
Some of our classes lead to a certification. While these are helpful for members of the trade, they are also completely appropriate for hobbyists. These classes typically come with a book and culminate in an exam, and include tastings. Browse our offerings today!
The Texas Wine School History
Founded in 2010 as an independent wine school, The Texas Wine School became a (501)(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2019. We have partnered with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and the Wine Scholar Guild to offer certification courses since 2011, periodically adding other classes along the way. As we grew, we have expanded the number of instructors, and have moved into our current facility, which we share with Art of Cellaring.
We are excited about our next chapter, which will include offering merit-based grants and scholarships, bringing guest speakers to town, and generally supporting the wine industry!
