Profile Information

Company Name
Society of Wine Educators
About my company:
The Society of Wine Educators was founded in 1974. We are a non-profit educational organization (501c3) whose mission is to advance wine education through professional development and certification.

In many professions, a successful career is marked by an appropriate education verified by a credible certification program that is recognized both by the public and one’s peers.

* These credentials are a valuable and widely respected mark of a wine professional’s commitment to personal career development and ultimately to the wine industry as a whole.

* Individuals that receive professional certification raise the standard of proficiency in the wine arena and assist the industry by elevating the knowledge base of everyone with whom they come in contact.

* Professional certification encourages an industry to build upon itself by fostering an environment where individuals can pursue excellence and achieve subject mastery.

Our education programs confer certifications not certificates or diplomas--and we encourage our members to use their post-nominals as part of their professional signatures.

The Society’s goal is to foster and promote the professional education and development of the individual in particular, and the professional education and development of the wine industry as a whole.
What city is Home?
