Wine Courses

Since its establishment, the Cyprus Oenophile Association has successfully organised Wine Knowledge & Tasting courses.

Since 2016, these courses have offered the opportunity to obtain a certification under the Regulation for the Certification of Persons as Connoisseur Oίνου [“Wine connoisseur”]. The Association promoted this Regulation in cooperation with the Cyprus Certification Company (CCC) and the Cyprus Sommelier Association.  A new advanced course is planned to start soon.

All those who attend the courses have the right to sit the examination organised by the CCC and obtain the Connoisseur Oίνου [“Wine connoisseur”] Certificate in case of success.

The courses take place in Limassol and Nicosia, include a theoretical and a practical part, and are completed in 7 evening classes of 3 hours each.

The participation fee is €150 per person for members of the Association and €180 per person for non-members. The fee includes:

  • The wines offered during the courses (Cypriot and international wines).
  • The course material (course notes).

For non-members, the above fee additionally includes:

  • Free registration with the Cyprus Oenophile Association (worth €10).
  • One-year subscription with the Cyprus Oenophile Association (worth €30).
