Lustau, maker of top quality Sherries, presents a brand new wine certification available to all wine students and professionals: the Certified Sherry Wine Specialist. Offered by Lucas Payà, Certified Sherry Educator and Lustau’s Brand Educator, this brief course offers Intermediate Level study material that has been reviewed and approved by the Regulatory Council of Jerez.
After many successful SOLD OUT workshops, ICC has partnered with Lustau again to host the certification seminar this April. Register today to reserve your seat!
The program consists of a 2.5-hour class that includes:
- Instruction on the history, geography, climate, viticulture, wine-making, and wine styles. When studying the styles of sherry, students will learn about their differences, pairings, and best ways to serve.
- A tasting of 6 wines, including all the basic styles (Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, and Dulce).
- A 28-question test, graded after the course to award the Certified Sherry Wine Specialist recognition to those with a passing score of 20 or higher.
The Certificate of Achievement will be signed by both Lustau’s CEO and César Saldaña, Director of the Regulatory Council of Jerez. They will be numbered and a list of those that passed the course will be shared with the Regulatory Council. A Certificate of Recognition will be issued to those that do not achieve the passing grade but only signed by Lustau.
Attendees must be at least 21 years of age.
