The Study Trips are open to everyone who is interested in learning more about French wine. The Wine Scholar Guild can provide foundation-level reading materials to help you to learn the basics before you start the Master-Level course for the region you’ll be visiting.  This information will enable you to approach the region and the Master-Level course from a position of strength. 

If you take the time to read and study the course in advance of the trip, you will learn a great deal and then during the trip, everything will come together as you see the region with your own eyes and taste the wines in the places where they are made. 

And... learning about wine doesn’t have to be like going back to school. It can be serious good fun!
