School of Wines & Spirits
Le Cordon Bleu's spirits & wines school in London offers some of the most innovative and professional spirit and wine courses in the country. Unlike traditional sommelier courses which focus predominantly on service, our specialist range of courses manage to combine the theory of wine knowledge with practical learning.
From an aspiring wine professional looking for a beginner wine course, to an enthusiast, we have something for everyone to fulfil their passion. Learning from some of the very best wine professionals, our Wine Diploma can turn a hobby into a career, developing your sensory evaluation technique, learning how to turn a concept into a business venture and gaining an industry insight that will give you an operational and strategic approach to the food and drinks business. The wine diploma can be studied consecutively with a 3-month internship.
Perfect for wine amateurs interested in developing their knowledge of the subject, our 3 month Certificate in Wine and Beverage Studies builds understanding, awareness and appreciation for the whole spectrum of wine, as well as other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages such as beer, cider, sake, spirits and cocktails, coffee and tea.
Our wine tasting masterclasses are also the perfect way for all wine enthusiasts to gain a better understanding and appreciation of wine, whilst developing an adventurous and critical palate by studying some of the key winemaking processes, regions and food pairings in a lively and friendly, yet studious series of evening sessions.
