Every year, the Université du Vin offers over a hundred different training courses and initiatives on all sorts of topics and for every profession, from the grapevine to the glass!

The University offers both short (half-day to 5 days) and long (one month to one year) training courses, with sessions for professionals looking to improve their knowledge, for people wanting to change careers, and for all wine enthusiasts who would just like to learn how to fully appreciate French wines, from the Rhône Valley or other regions, learn about wine & food pairing, or discover some of the more iconic appellations, etc.
