Certified Specialist of Spirits Info

Absolute Beginners!

Sunday, August 30th – 4:00 pm central time: Absolute Beginners—presented by Jane A. Nickles, CSE, CWE. 

Are you just beginning your wine journey? Are you befuddled by the fact that Zinfandel is a red grape? Do you confuse your AVAs with your AOCs? Do you have no idea what I am even talking about? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this webinar is for you!

We will start at the absolute beginning by defining wine, learning the basics of wine production, clearing up differences between white and red (and rosé), and figuring out the “alphabet soup” of AVAs, AOCs, and DOCs. This one-hour session is ideal for wine newbies who have signed up for our October CSW prep class, but everyone is welcome! Grab your favorite wine and taste along with us!

This webinar is free and open to the public, however, you will need to register in advance. To secure your spot, please contact Jane Nickles at jnickles@societyofwineeducators.org.

CWE Study Site

Studying for the Certified Wine Educator just got easier! The CWE Study Site—a study resource for CWE candidates.

New and improved! We have recently added several new features to our CWE Study Site! We’ve added a suite of advanced wine quizzes based on the CSW Study Guide (but positioned to be much tougher than a typical CSW question) and a series of “Match Game” quizzes focusing on rivers, mountains, towns, valleys, and grapes.

The CWE Study Site is useful for anyone preparing for the theory portion of an advanced wine certification, and specially provides a detailed study program for the theory portion of the CWE Exam—all based on the texts and other resources included in the Recommended Reading List for the exam. Suggested study schedules, critical thinking questions, and suggested essay drills are included—along with a plethora of quizzes based on the suggested study modules.

Use of the site is available for $19.00, which entitles the user to unlimited use for 2 years.
