In some cases, we have included political maps of certain areas to assist with basic geography (such as the states of Australia, and the autonomous communities of Spain). Enrollment in this activity costs $19 and lasts for one year of unlimited use. 

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.
