It is being created by the Wine Scholar Guild and designed by Rick Fisher, Spanish Wine Scholar Education Director.
As a certification program, it confers the Spanish Wine Scholar title and SWS post-nominal to wine professionals and enthusiasts who successfully pass the certification exams (Ex: John Smith, SWS).

These programs offer students the opportunity to set themselves apart by acquiring mastery in the wines of the three largest wine producing and wine exporting companies in the world.
The official, international launch of the SWS program is slated for Summer/Fall 2019.
