About the Program
This certification program focuses specifically on wines from the Ontario region and covers a wide range of wine topics. It's a home based self-study program that you complete on your own time, at your own pace. There is no time limit for the self study.
You will have to arrange to pick-up the training manual from our office. Once you complete your home study, you can come in anytime during our hours of operation to write your wine test. The test must be completed here at our facility. When you complete the test, we will forward it to the Wine Council of Ontario. Your test will be evaluated, and upon successful completion, your certificate will be forwarded to you by mail.
