Ideal for students whom would like to complete
their certification over a shorter period of time
and those who do not live within the vicinity of the
schools, or who reside outside of the US.
Six-day course includes:
This course prepares the student to become knowledgeable in all the
major wine regions of the world. Wine tasting techniques are taught
using your sense of sight, smell and taste to develop an initial and then
final conclusion as to where the wine comes from. It also requires
you to develop an evaluation technique to describe which grape
varietal(s) the wine makers use and be able to explain some of the
techniques used to vinify the wine.
Tastings include between 100+ wines.
These wines are tasted in special tasting glasses.
Leading wine makers or certified wine experts lead each tasting.
Upon successful completion of the course a two-part test
is given to the students on Friday 29-May 10:30am to 12:30pm.
Students wishing to get results that day can check out of hotel
and break until 3:00pm for results and exit interviews.
Part one of the test is a (1) hour written multiple choice
and essay type test covering wine theory and practical
wine service. Part two is a written double-blind tasting
examination by the USSA board of examiners covering
the techniques taught in the course.
Students scoring a 70% grade on each segment
will receive their USSA Intermediate Sommelier Certificate.
