The Certified Specialist of Wine certification course (CSW) was developed by the Society of Wine Educators (SWE) in conjunction with prominent members of the wine industry. The CSW has become one of the most important trade credentials in the wine industry today. Companies such as Banfi, E & J Gallo, Kobrand, Trincero Winery, and many national distributors are major supporters.
The CSW program covers basic wine chemistry, viticulture, winemaking, wine service, and the major wine producing regions of the world. To earn the CSW title you must pass a one-hour exam consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions. Successful candidates, achieving a score of at least 75%, are entitled to add the post-nominal to their professional signature.
