New Year’s Resolution: Kick-Start Your Wine Career at San Francisco Wine School
Is this the year to take your wine expertise to the next level? San Francisco Wine School unveils eight winter/spring wine programs and over 40 workshops designed to do just that. Classes take place in the San Francisco Bay Area and online in the School’s cutting edge virtual classroom, plus there will be a special traveling program in Las Vegas.
The 2015 calendar includes challenging coursework designed to bolster job skills while providing credentials that can bump students’ salaries. Programs include the California Wine Appellation Specialist certification, the Society of Wine Educators’ Certified Specialist of Wine program, the French Wine Scholar certification course, the Italian Wine Professional program, and Somm Essentials.
For a very targeted career boost, consider San Francisco Wine School’s three or four-hour workshops. More than 40 individual wine, spirits and service workshops within the School’s credential programs can be taken individually. They focus on wine regions of the world, including those in France, Italy, and California, and additional workshops target technical topics like Blind Wine Tasting Basics, Food Pairing Lab, Wine Service Techniques and Spirits Survey.
“I’ve taken classes at San Francisco Wine School at different stages in my career and through different jobs,” noted student Emily Crichton. “Even though the application of my newfound knowledge was different each time, every one of those classes greatly elevated my understanding of wine.”
San Francisco Wine School founder and instructor David Glancy is one of only twelve people in the world to hold both the revered Master Sommelier diploma and the Certified Wine Educator credential. More importantly, Glancy is a visionary for wine education, carefully selecting each program he offers. When he identifies a gap, he tailors a comprehensive program to fill that need.
