Why The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institute of Vancouver

How do you create an outstanding Wine program?

You start with industry leaders.
At The Art Institute of Vancouver, we understand the importance of building partnerships and collaborating with established organizations in the B.C. wine and spirits industry. We also believe in providing a well designed wine education program that is supported by a proven-track record for success in the culinary and hospitality industry.

At the heart of our wine programs is the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) curriculum which is recognized across the globe and widely regarded as the gold standard in comprehensive training for the wine and spirits trade.

For added value, The Art Institute of Vancouver has called upon the diverse wine training & knowledge of its instructors to create something unique. With the WSET syllabus at the core of all programs, we have incorporated additional material and instructional hours to better suit the needs of our marketplace and students of wine across Canada. This means exposure to a greater variety of wines, increased emphasis on food & wine matching and wine service, as well as more opportunities to work with instructors in developing your palate. We truly believe this makes our courses the most comprehensive and well rounded on offer in the city today.

Additionally, all of our programs are offered multiple times during the year, which means you can start your wine and spirits education when you want. To accommodate learners located outside the Lower Mainland, we also offer our wine programs in Victoria, Edmonton and Kamloops (see locations).
