How to Become a Sommelier

how to become a sommelierYour love of wine has brought you here. Maybe you received excellent wine service at a restaurant recently. Maybe you act as an informal sommelier at dinner parties. Now you want to know how to become a sommelier.

How to Become a Sommelier: Step One

We encourage everyone who wants to know how to become a sommelier to attend our Level I certification Seminar. There are five diploma options, four for current professinals and one for enthusiasts, for individuals who complete the seminar, and each certification received will open up more professional and educational doors. In this state-accredited course, you will taste more than two-dozen wines from around the world, receive extensive wine education materials, and learn from a wine Master.

If you are an enthusiast, with less than 2 years industry experience, you must complete three courses to receive a professional certification.  Thaese are: (1) the Level I Wine Certificatin Seminar, (2) the Level II Advanced Wine Course and (3) the Advanced Wine and Food Pairing Course

How to Become a Sommelier: Step Two

Wine lovers wondering how to become a sommelier may want to take their knowledge to the next level. We recommend that individuals who truly want to know how to become a sommelier--and work in the industry--complete not only Level I, but also our Level II training. The Level II training is a continuation of the knowledge learned in the Level I training, on a much more comprehensive level. Offered as a twelve-week course or a one-week intensive, wine enthusiasts and professionals will gain tremendous knowledge after completing this sommelier training course.

How to Become a Sommelier: Step Three

After completing the Level II training, many people feel confident in calling themselves sommeliers. However, you can never have too much knowledge when seeking how to become a sommelier. Our Level III course is an expert-level certification, which upon completion awards you with the title Guild Wine Master. This extensive program requires you to take seven courses and complete a master's exam for each course.

While wine enthusiasts may simply take the Level I certification course, if you truly want to know how to become a sommelier, we encourage you to continue with your wine education, so that you're not only a sommelier, but a Wine Master.
