Description:This Ontario College Certificate program provides students with the skills and knowledge required to enter into, or advance within, the wine profession. Wine knowledge has become an important tool in every aspect of the hospitality industry, and the demand for qualified wine professionals has risen dramatically. Students investigate the major grape varieties, as well as the viticulture and viniculture of the main growing areas of the world. Tasting a wide variety of wines increases students' abilities to recognize distinctive aromas and flavours associated with these wine regions. Students explore topics, such as food and wine matching, cellaring tips, marketing techniques, wine list development and strategies for the proper service of wine, beer and whiskies. As part of the program of study, students achieve certification from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 1 Award in Wine Service, Level 2 Award in Wine and Spirits, and Level 2 Award in Spirits.

To qualify for this Ontario College certificate you must complete the program within four years.
