APWASI is a non-profit organization based in Vancouver, Canada.

Over the past decade, there has been an unprecedented rise in interest in both wine and spirits in the Asia region. This phenomena has resulted in an increased number of wine and spirit professionals worldwide looking to increase their knowledge and broaden their horizons. These professionals are eagerly seeking more practical educational platforms to develop their personal knowledge base. The world in Asia is fast paced, highly competitive and time is a treasure that cannot be replicated nor bought. Education is the key to entering any new profession. What is less clear is the best, most efficient, methods for achieving those career goals, especially in Asia.

Made Possible with grants from The Government of Canada.




APWASI courses are curated and developed by Dr. Clinton Lee. Dr. Lee is an international wine lecturer and wine writer and critic who has delivered lectures to a wide body of audiences ranging from professional bodies to the wine aficionados.
