Wines of France Certificate

Credential Earned: 

France produces many of the planet’s best old-world wines. 

The Wines of France certificate leads you on a virtual tour, from grape to glass, of eight important French wine regions. To prepare for this journey, you will first complete the “Wine Essentials” course to build a foundational understanding of viticulture, winemaking, and wine evaluation. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore the French wine classification systems, the varietals grown in different regions of France, and how the climate affects the grape and wine outcomes in the next course, “Grape Varietals of France.” You’ll also examine terms you will encounter on French wine labels so you are prepared to anticipate the characteristics of a given wine. During the third course, “Experience Wines of France,” you’ll select French wines to taste, share, and compare. 

Whether you’re working in a professional hospitality setting, entertaining, or simply enjoying, after completing the program, you’ll be able to select, experience, and recommend French wines with greater confidence — not to mention impress your guests!
