Sommelier & Wine Cellar Management Level 3/4 - Advanced Wines & Spirits Studies (I,II)
These two programs may be studied separately but are designed to be complementary, each covering different areas of the wines and spirits world. They both deliver a high level of wines and spirits knowledge that will ultimately equip the learner with the skills and confidence to select and purchase such beverages for an establishment’s list or bar. Individual wine and spirit producing regions will be examined.
Key wine-styles will be tasted and discussed with particular reference to today’s marketplace and accompanying cuisine. Full cellar management and service procedures are learned here together with a more advanced level of wine tasting technique. These programs would ideally suit a senior person in the hospitality industry such as a bar manager, sommelier or establishment owner. Upon successful completion, The Art Institute of Vancouver will award a certificate of competence for each Level III and Level IV. In addition, students who successfully complete both Levels will be awarded the Advanced Certificate in Wines & Spirits by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.
