Our programming and certifications are designed specifically for North America, including the United States, Canada, and Mexico; however, anyone can take the L1 program from any country because it does not require wine to be purchased.
Before registering for any course other than the L1, you should verify with your local wine shop that they can access small producer wines from all the major wine regions.
Here are some examples of hard-to-find wines that you will need:
- Priorat from Spain
- Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara
- American-oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia
- An American Chardonnay that was oak-aged but did not go through malolactic fermentation.
- A Red Bordeaux from Blaye
Please keep in mind we cannot offer support to international students with wine selections.
There also may be an increased cost to ship our scent kit and exam materials internationally.
