Read What Our Students Have to Say About Our Online Wine Courses

Being a member of the CONFRERIE DE LA CHAINE DES ROTISSEURS I take my food and wine very seriously. This is my profession and I was expecting high standards in the level of wine courses as well. I was not disappointed and I would unreservedly recommend the wine introduction and wine pairing courses as I found these two courses which I took to be extremely useful, practical and high informative. A job well done APWASI.
George Chu

The course I took was interesting, to the point, practical and cleared many previously hidden facts for me. The knowledge gained from their course is in use every day and I am now imparting that to my staff. I will be enrolling in another course thank you APWASI. I can now understand my Asian clients better.
Gayatri Keshav
Wine Manager
I had read about and studied wine courses about Bordeaux, but had never been there. My tour to Bordeaux was exhilarating, dynamic and above all I touched, saw and felt the world of wine at my finger tips on this tour. We visited world class wineries like Chateau Haut Brion, Chateau Pichon Baron and famous region of Sauternes and Graves. Great and what an experience looking forward to touring Italy with APWASI.
Michael Lee
Wine Exporter and Wine Professional
Learning about wine with APWASI has made my business more profitable and my customers keep on coming back. Their wine course was phenomenal. A huge thank you.

At APWASI, we have wine courses available for every level. Our courses are easy to follow and supplemented with videos to enhance the learning experience. As a beginner, we suggest that you take the Wine Essentials 1 course to give you the foundation that you need.

We also have a FREE preview course that you can take to understand the general structure of our courses.

Generally we suggest between 19-25 hours of studying for every course. This includes reading through the material, completing the quizzes and the final examination. However, there is no time limit for the online wine or spirit course. The most important is for you to enjoy this journey to indulge your curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

We encourage you to complete this course within six months from registration. As the course recommendation is between 19-25 hours, a six-month period of completion is an exaggerated premium of time for you as we want you to do other more constructive things in life than procrastinate.

Our online wine courses are aimed at wine professionals and sommeliers currently in the industrythose who are intending to join the industry, and wine enthusiasts. However, no prior experience is necessary and beginners are all welcome to take the courses.

Those in retail, importing, exporting, distributing, and perhaps even producing. If you are in the hospitality industry, hotel, airline, cruise ship, high-medium end restaurants, these courses will give you a firm and unquestionable structure of wine and spirit knowledge to further your career.

Anywhere! As our wine and spirit courses are all online and self-paced, you can take these courses at any time or place!

APWASI takes a practical approach in wine education. In addition to the practical wine skills and knowledge you require in your career, we also focus on the culture and the people of each country that the wine originates from.

We bring fresh beginnings with new education methods to match the new trends and embrace the plethora of learning styles. If you value the future as we state, “learning for the future” then we are your future.

Acquiring any knowledge is a true blessing in any culture. But, acquiring knowledge in an area and career you are avid about can have no effect other than a positive one. Our courses are practical, up-to-date, structured in a manner where it is easy to absorb information, flexible, accessible whenever you need it.

Upon successful completion, you will receive a certification that is globally recognized. Your success will be recognized in the form of post-nominal letters that you are entitled to use. For example, upon successful completion of the Italian course Mr. Nice Guy can write: Mr. Nice Guy Certified Wine Professional Italy (APWASI)

One cannot learn to swim without water and neither do we expect you to learn without tasting. We have at the end of each course a selection of wines we recommend you to try using the skills you have acquired. Through this method you can increase your practical wine tasting skills. Our courses allow you to evaluate the wines by understanding the “why” and “the how”.

The ability to taste wine is universal. The methodology to understanding wine and appreciating wine is not universal and that needs to be understood through concept, tasting and recording. You will learn the wine tasting skills in the Wine Essentials 1 course, which is a pre-requisite to any courses you select. Within this course lie the secrets to identifying, nosing and tasting wines and finally evaluate wines. It’s our pleasure to join you on this journey of adventure and bountiful knowledge. After taking this course you will learn and be able to taste wine with comfort.
