Society of Wine Educator(米国ワインエデュケーター協会、CWE、CSWの資格試験を行います)のメンバー宛に、8月22日から5日間Culinary Institute of Americaと共同で行うNapa Valley Wine Educators Academy 2010の申し込み案内が来ました。
参加資格は"Participants must currently be professional wine educators not affiliated with a winery."とのことで、私も参加資格はないのですが、カリキュラムはちょっと興味を惹かれます。
