French, Italian, & Spanish Wine Scholar Certifications

Cellar Muse is an approved provider for the Wine Scholar Guild certification programs. Tanya and the Cellar Muse team provide French Wine Scholar, Italian Wine Scholar, and Spanish Wine Scholar certification programs for in-class learning and testing in Washington State. Wine Scholar Guild programs are respectively the most comprehensive formal study programs available bar none. The materials are comprehensive, thoughtfully, and beautifully compiled, and updated every year to reflect the ever-changing nature of wine law.

These programs are wonderful on their own, but also are great companions to other, broader certifications such as WSET L3, Diploma, or CMS Advanced. The programs are appropriate for the professional who wants to specialize, or the enthusiast who wants to deepen their intimate knowledge of their most beloved wines.
