Wine School of Philadelphia Opens to the Public, sets up to Organize a Six-Day Sommelier Crash Course

The Accelerated Core Wine Course is part of the school’s annual “Summer Wine School” program happening throughout August. Offerings include the week-long program and Friday Night Wine School.

Critically-acclaimed Wine School of Philadelphia (WSoP) is offering a one-week sommelier course, the Accelerated Core Wine Course next month. The course which contains two sections; Foundation and Intermediate typically takes two semesters to complete. However, WSoP will be compressing the whole wine course into a week’s learning for interested students.


The Accelerated Core Wine Course is part of the school’s annual “Summer Wine School” program happening throughout August. Offerings include the week-long program and Friday Night Wine School. The sommelier crash course was designed for people seeking to become wine instructors but would not have the time for the full semesters. Friday Night Wine School on the other hand is a fun evening of wine and conversation with winemakers and sommeliers which is available to members of the school’s private wine club. These offerings are a part of the school’s Advanced Sommelier curriculum.


The sommelier course will be held at the school’s main building at 22nd Street in the Center City neighborhood of Rittenhouse. Well-known as Philadelphia's poshest neighborhood, Rittenhouse is the city’s mecca of fine dining, wine, and cultural destinations. The school is easy to access, just minutes from either the highway or Amtrak’s 30th Street Station.


Classes are scheduled to commence on the 16th of August and will run through to the 21st. For the convenience of interested students, classes will be held in the evenings where there will be short dinner breaks between sessions. In the first section, students will learn how to taste wines with the skills of an advanced sommelier, able to describe flavors and delve into the nuances of taste. In the second session, they will enter and embrace the world of wine, learning about all the major grapes and major wine regions across the globe. Upon successful completion, graduates will earn their Level Three sommelier pins.


Ranked as one of the top five wine schools in America by online magazine, SOMM, courses offered by the WSoP’s include the Introductory Wine Course, Core Wine Courses, Advanced Wine Courses and Online Wine courses for people who prefer to study from the comfort of wherever they are. Additionally, the school has been featured in publications such as the Wine Spectator and the prestigious Wall Street Journal.


Since its founding in 2001, WsoP has earned a reputation for offering a world-class wine education. Their graduates include a wide and diverse group of wine professionals, including hundreds of winemakers, restaurateurs, and sommeliers.
