The Sommelier Experience is ideal for intermediate to advanced wine lovers who have got what it takes to learn what is required to become a professional sommelier... in just 2 ½ hours.
"When drinking an older or rare wine, I always offer the waiter or sommelier a taste."
From the heart of one of Burgundy’s most historic vineyards, become a wine expert in no time at all.
Along the way, explore the world’s wine regions, learn how to build your own cellar, study food and wine pairings and take part in our famous blind tasting analysis so you can identify any wine simply by smell and by sip.
Designed by our sommeliers, for aspiring sommeliers, this immersive, and educational, experience will ensure you have all you need to take your passion to the next level.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
The Sommelier Experience is your first stop to wine enlightenment. Come prepared to drink in a lot of different topics. Our ambition is to offer you an intensive course that details the everyday duties of international sommeliers, touching on the world of international wine markets, grape varieties, aging, handing wines, food pairing, wine service and blind tasting. While our Sommelier Experience can’t certify you as a sommelier, it will ensure you have an impressive and enviable head start.
WHAT YOU’LL TASTE:
Blind tasting is one of the most challenging and entertaining part of a sommelier’s training. We’ll accompany you through a blind tasting of eight wines from around the world.
Of course, we can’t reveal them here!
All of our Wine Experiences are hosted by sommeliers and Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) trained professionals. Our Wine Advisors offer a thoughtful and authoritative approach to help educate about the history of wine, biodynamic vineyard management, our signature winemaking techniques and how to taste wine correctly.
