The Certified Specialist of Wine certification was developed by the Society of Wine Educators in conjunction with prominent members of the wine industry. The CSW has become one of the most important trade credentials in the wine industry today. Companies such as Banfi, E & J Gallo, Kobrand, Trincero Winery, and many national distributors are major supporters.
A Certified Specialist of Wine is a person who has received the Certified Specialist of Wine certification from the Society of Wine Educators by passing a 100 multiple-choice question examination within a 60-minute time frame.
Those candidates scoring 75 percent or higher on the examination will receive a certificate recognizing their achievement, a CSW lapel pin, and the ability to use the post nominal “CSW” as part of their professional title.
The Texas Wine School is classified as a “Private School” with the S.W.E. which means we can offer our students tuition, materials and exams directly through the Texas Wine School. The Texas Wine School provides the instructor and the Power Point Presentations along with any extra quizzes or course assignments. The tuition is not endorsed, evaluated or affiliated with the S.W.E. however the exam is proctored by S.W.E. approved proctors only. Please note there will be no wine tasting in the 16 hours of led tuition.
Please note if you undertake this course as self study through the S.W.E. as a member the price would be $485 and as a non member $525 (including the CSW Lesson Plan).
