WSET Approved Programme Provider

Hill Country Wine Academy is a proud provider of courses through the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, a UK-based organization recognized internationally for maintaining a consistent standard for wine theory and tasting technique of wines from around the world. WSET courses are designed to inspire and empower anyone looking to develop their drinks knowledge - from beginners to experts, and from enthusiasts to professionals. WSET has provided industry-leading qualifications and education in wines since 1969. These courses are rigorous and rewarding, with a tasting of select international wines, materials, and lectures included in each course experience.While Texas wine is not included in the discussion at these courses, we understand that it is with the information and skills learned and practiced in the WSET format that we may truly appreciate the unique character of a Texas-grown wine. 

In 2022, Hill Country Wine Academy became an Approved Programme Provider for WSET courses. All the course and testing materials are approved and monitored by WSET to ensure the quality of your learning experience. The HCWA sought to become an approved provider to not only educate our Wine Ambassadors but to help provide a local place for education to our industry peers and fellow wine enthusiasts across the Hill Country. Anyone is encouraged to sign up for the WSET courses no matter their current level of wine knowledge.
