ACADEMIC FOCUS: Wines & Wine/Food Matching
Take this opportunity to taste close to 500 wines, hone wine and food pairing skills, and see the wine making process
up close. At the approximate level of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Certificate, the program is delivered by
an internationally recognized wine school– the Deutsche Wein und Sommelierschule. (www.german-wineschool.com).
This hands-on sommelier course focuses on the wines of Europe, but includes a mix of old and new world products.
Three weeks of lectures are delivered by 6-7 different experienced and internationally recognized professors. The
course is intense, and students should expect evening reviews with a local tutor. Classes are augmented with one week
of excursions to vineyards and wine cellars in the surrounding wine growing regions of France and Switzerland. After the
final examination of written and practical tasting, certificates will be issued to successful candidates.
“The Germany Study Abroad Program was honestly the best 4 weeks
of my life. To go with such good friends and to leave with even more
couldn't have been better. I learned so much from the instructors,
the material, and the tours” ~Disa Saugstad 2007 participant
