The Institute has an original approach in terms of pedagogy. Based on experience and Learning by Doing, learners are encouraged to put their knowledge and insights into practice.

4 fundamental principles define our method of learning:
– an interactive approach putting the learner at the center of the process by referring to the Montessori school method
– an understanding of wine through the emotions it provides: theater techniques
– an intuitive tasting by learning to taste the wine based on perception
– a transmission of technical knowledge to obtain a certification

Training courses mostly lasting two days, allow a deeper look into topics with varying levels of difficulty to perpetuate learning and to obtain an exceptional professional qualification.
Red wine, white wine or rosé will have no secrets for you.


Our certifying courses allow you to work in a wide variety of establishments: wine cellars, wine bars, traditional and fine dining restaurants, specialty stores, department stores, large and medium-sized retail outlets, small businesses, tourist offices and many others.
