Our Mission

At the Hill Country Wine Academy, we believe in wine as food and with food, as an experience, and as a product of agriculture. Through this lens, we provide and create the highest quality, interactive wine education. Whether you are a wine professional or connoisseur, looking to enter the wine industry, or just passing by, there is a class in our collection to inspire and entertain you. Together, we can achieve our goal of urging the conversation about wine forward within the state of Texas and beyond. Our course collection includes international wine-focused WSET courses, specially curated Texas wine certification courses, and a series of core short courses. You will find us at our location in Stonewall, at satellite locations across Texas, and virtually.

What People Are Saying

  • I am a wine professional with 18 years of experience, a Certified Sommelier, and wine judge. I learned more in 1 day of training then I have in years. Kelsey made Texas POP for me, and I can't wait to go back and learn more.

    Kristine Bono

  • Hill Country Wine Academy did an excellent job teaching our staff more about the history and nuances of Texas Wine! I feel much more confident having conversations with customers about what makes our industry so unique.

    Jean Buckner

  • I completed the Texas Wine Ambassador course in September 2023. Not only did I learn a lot about wine, I learned a lot about the history of our state! I definitely have a greater appreciation for all that is influencing TX wine now...
