Deutsche Wein- und Sommelierschule
The German Wine and Sommelier School, with its branch offices in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and Würzburg, is the market leader in Germany in the professional training and continuing education of sommeliers in the on- and off-trade.
Since 2008 keen wine enthusiasts, those coming into the trade from other lines of business and those interested in establishing a new business in the wine trade have been able to attend the part-time continuing education courses known as the „Wine Expert“ programme. The professional training for sommeliers provides a very practical introduction to the world of wine.
Both novices out to learn about wine from the basics on, and professionals seeking to refresh and update their existing knowledge have turned to the school for the past 16 years, and made use of the comprehensive range of seminars and courses on offer, presented by well-known and respected expert lecturers.
The Koblenz Chamber of Commerce is the umbrella organisation running the German Wine and Sommelier School, guaranteeing serious, professional, non-partisan continuing education at the highest level, offering the only state-recognised examination in this field in Germany.
