About the Certified Sherry Educator Course

Every year the Regulatory Council of Sherry Wines organises two courses in Jerez – one in Spanish (in the spring), and the other in English (in the autumn) - offering advanced theory and practical training sessions over a two and a half day period. The course is highly selective, with only 20 candidates accepted in each language, and is extremely hands-on - the intensive programme includes on-site visits to three bodegas, classroom tutorials, masterclasses and tastings. At the end of the sessions, students take an evaluation test in which they have to demonstrate their knowledge, both theoretical and practical. The successful candidates receive a diploma which qualifies them as OFFICIAL CERTIFIED SHERRY EDUCATORS.
