The US Sommelier Association is a Florida non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and teaching of the wine culture to wine lovers and industry professionals.

Our Mission

We offer multiple levels of Wine Course Certification programs. Courses locations include our Lincoln Road Campus, Miami Beach, City Series in San Francisco, Vineyard Series at Wente Vineyards, Livermore Valley, CA and Napa Valley, CA as well as Immersion Courses available throughout the USA.

Our Wine School focuses on the practical aspects of enjoying wine. A premium selection of wines from around the world will be tasted in each course, offering a broad introduction to all wines. Many wines are tasted blind to make learning both interactive and fun. Courses include theoretical knowledge, practical service, sensory evaluation through professional technical tasting with master aroma kits, food and wine pairing, deciphering wine labels, sabering and more..

We offer the ONLY Sommelier Certificate Course ON-SITE at the legendary Wente Vineyards (Sunday to Friday with the Hotel Package). With all of our courses selling out,, we have limited offerings for upcoming Winter, Springs and Fall 2016. Enrollment is open, space limited, apply online or call our office direct.
