Washington Wine Academy was chosen as one of the Five Best Places to Study Wine by Food and Wine and although there aren’t many reviews for the school, three Yelpers gave them 4.5 stars: > * …staffed by top local wine writers and sommeliers – Lettie Teague, Food and Wine > * I really appreciated being exposed to some great new wines that I can actually afford outside the confines of a tasting, rather than feeling like, “Wow, that was fantastic, too bad I will never be able to drink it again.” – Shelagh P., Yelp
Washington Wine Academy
Named one of the 5 Best Places to Study Wine in the country by Food & Wine magazine, Washington Wine Academy has something for novices and experts alike. The school’s offerings include professional-certification classes, tours of local wineries, singles mixers, and wine-and-a-movie nights, all overseen by top wine writers and sommeliers. This blend of education and entertainment has proven successful: on average, the Academy educates more than 100's of enthusiasts per month and hosts more than 150 wine and beer classes each year.
Students and visitors gather in the academy’s brick and mortar wine school–the first of its kind in the DC area. A large hall provides the perfect setting for presentations or Model UN practice, and the nearby Crystal City stocks an extensive collection of beer and wines from around the world.
