Excellence In Wine, Spirits And Sake Education Since 1977

IWEG Drinks Academy is the original and only Canadian school to offer all programs and qualifications of the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) - including the flagship “Level 4 Diploma” program - leading to internationally recognized certification in Wine, Spirits and Sake. 

WSET programs, widely considered the "Gold Standard" in wine education, are now offered in more than seventy countries across the globe. IWEG is the recipient of the prestigious WSET Lifetime Achievement Award for spearheading establishment of the WSET programme in Canada and for excellence in wine and spirit education since 1977.

IWEG also offers Wine Scholar Guild's French Wine Scholar (FWS) and Italian Wine Scholar (IWS) courses, and Wines of Portugal Academy certification. Our unique Ontario’s Brave New Wines course, developed in conjunction with the Wine Council of Ontario, leads to Ontario Wine Specialist certification.

Our scheduling is diverse and flexible, offering in-class or online study; day or evening classes; and condensed or less intensive formats as well as custom corporate programming.

With over forty years of operation, IWEG is passionate about helping our students achieve their personal or professional goals. Our instructors are subject-area experts and professionally trained educators, dedicated to student engagement and success. Many of our WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wine and Spirits graduates have progressed to assume leadership roles in the Drinks and Hospitality industries in Canada.

We have higher than global average pass rates for WSET courses, and offer a unique student experience, including, proprietary study aids, the availability of study scholarships and field trips made possible by our Sponsors and trade partners, and a host of monthly networking events and sought after master-classes at the school.
