Certified Sherry Wine Specialist Class
Walnut Hill College, Lustau, and the Capital Wine School present a brand-new wine certification available to all wine students and aficionados, the Certified Sherry Wine Specialist. This brief course offers intermediate-level study material that has been reviewed and approved by the Regulatory Council of Jerez.
The program consists of a two-hour class that will include the following:
– Instruction on the history, geography, climate, viticulture, wine making, and wine styles. When studying the styles of sherry, students will learn about their differences, pairings, and best ways to serve.
– A tasting of all the basic styles (Finos, Amontillados, Olorosos, and Sweets; 6 wines)
– A test (28 questions) graded after the course to award the Certified Sherry Wine Specialist recognition to those with a passing score of 20.
The Certificate of Achievement will be signed by both Lustau’s CEO and César Saldaña, Director of the Regulatory Council of Jerez. They will be numbered, and a list of those who passed the course will be shared with the Regulatory Council. A Certificate of Recognition will be issued to those who do not receive a passing grade but will be signed only by Lustau. We do encourage students to retake the exam at a later date, as there are no restrictions as to how many times they may submit.
This course is offered by Lucas Payà, Certified Sherry Educator and Lustau’s Brand Educator.
Date: Monday, September 25, 2017
