Advanced Wine Course

In August 2020 Luke Campbell, founding Sommelier proudly launched the ‘Vinified Wine Academy’ online starting with the Advanced Wine Course. Campbell has the belief that there are many options for people who want to know about wine, (excluding industry focused WSET and CMS programs) but not a lot of options for people who want to learn about wine. Courses are designed and taught be Melbourne’s leading Sommelier’s. Utilising the skills of those who would ordinarily be treading the boards at establishments like Ezard, Vue du Monde and the like. You can read about the other presenting Sommeliers’ Ben Skipper and Jackson Watson.

The Advanced Wine Course is taught from within the industry, by actual sommelier’s. The four-week course is designed for those who have discovered the wines they like in a basic course and want to ‘level up’ their skills. In addition to CMS and WSET qualified Sommelier’s mentoring you, special guest winemakers and presenters are also invited in to present via Zoom sporadically over the journey. Several modules are covered throughout the course;
