Awards Replace Certificates

In the UK a new certification Authority for WSET led to a change in titles for the documents you receive when you successfully pass a WSET exam. From now on “Certificate” has been replaced by “Award.”

WSET Certified Educators

Every WSET center must have at least one WSET Certified Educator, who has gone through extensive training on teaching techniques. We have far exceeded that minimum, having sent ten of our instructors to this training.

Diploma via Video

Only six cities in the U.S. offer the WSET Diploma. If you’re not near one of them your options had been just home study or WSET’s Online Diploma Course. Now we have a third option: video participation in our Diploma classes via a Skype-like connection. There is no additional charge when you enroll in the home study course.

More Great Diploma Results

Our recent students continued our excellent performances on the WSET Diploma Unit 3 (Light Wines) exam. Fifteen of 21 students passed the theory portion and 19 of 21 passed the tasting portion. This is far above the international pass rate (approximately 50%) for this difficult, day-long exam.

Welcome to

This is the place to find world-recognized, quality wine classes in the Philadelphia area. We also offer wine tastings and referral to wine experts who host private events. We've been providing high quality wine tastings & wine classes in the Delaware Valley since 1988 (as Neal Ewing Wine Services).


World's Best Wine Classes: WSET and Beyond WSET logo

We are a Registered Centre and Approved Programme Provider for the world-renowned wine courses of England's Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

Our instructors have nationally and internationally recognized wine credentials. Our students' high passing rate on the difficult WSET exams is a testament to our instructors' teaching skills.

We provide instructors and curriculum for the wine courses offered at several local colleges.

We also offer our own wine classes and wine tastings at a variety of restaurants and educational institutions in the Philadelphia area.

We don't scrimp on either the wines we pour or the people we have brought in as guest speakers.  Our wine classes and wine tastings have included some of the world's rarest and most expensive wines, and our guest speakers have included many of the world's top winemakers and wine masters.


Private Wine Tastings

If you are looking for someone to lead an in-home wine tasting or other private event, we will be glad to refer you to a thoroughly knowledgeable wine expert. You and he or she can make your own arrangements, without having to pay anything additional to our organization. There is no arbitrary minimum number of guests and no arbitrary per-person fee, so your savings can be substantial.
