Where do I begin?

Begin by always logging on through You will arrive at your home page (here) and be able to look at the different sections of the coursework as well as the Resources tab.

Next, click into Resources—we advise download the ‘Glossary of Terms’ before you go through the coursework as it’s a super handy cheat sheet for any tricky wine vocab.

Then click Introduction and watch the video. Continue on to History and move at your own pace throughout the course.

How long does it last?

The course takes around 2 – 4 hours depending on your pace. You can stop, start, and go back or skip forward as much as you like. There are quizzes at the end of each section, straight after the recap to test your learning as you go.

Is there a test at the end?

Yes, there’s a final multiple-choice test at the end with a total of 40 questions. The questions change slightly each time. Make sure to study!

We recommend having fun with the flashcards which you will find in the Resources Guide. They will help prepare you as you go, anytime you feel like really or for revision prior to the final test. If you get 30/40 correct, you will receive a certification of expertise in the wine region. We allow 3 tries. After 3 if you want to try again, you will need to pay a $10 admin fee for additional 3 tries.

*You will have access to the course content for 12 months from the date you start the course, so you can revisit as often as you like.

What’s the Resources tab?

The Resources are to help you understand the course through extra downloadable content. It contains a Glossary of Terms, Flashcards, and a guide to the AOPs of Provence.
