SWE’s SWEbinar series is unique in that it is offered free-of-charge, and open to the public! Please note that our sessions are offered as live, interactive events and are not recorded. We try to accommodate all schedules by offering sessions on weekdays and weekends, as well as daytime and evening hours. If you have a topic you would like to see addressed, or a time-of-day that would work for you, please let our Director of Education, Jane A. Nickles know via email at jnickles@societyofwineeducators.org

Login Instructions: At the appointed time, just click on the link, as seen at the bottom of this page. There is no need to register in advance. Links will go “live” a few hours before the scheduled date.

When the SWE Adobe Connect homepage appears, click on “enter as a guest,” type in your name, and click “enter room.” Remember that each session is limited to 100 attendees, and that several of our past sessions have reached capacity. We are hoping to avoid this issue in the future by offering more SWEbinars, but its still a good idea to log on early!

If you have never attended an Adobe Connect event before, it is also a good idea to test your connection ahead of time (just click on the link).

    Hi! I would love to start getting into some of these seminars, particularly the CSS Spirit ones, gonna start studying for the exam sometime soon! Now question, are the “Chapters” mentioned being taken out of the study book? And if so, are there any other particular sources or ways to study the subject you would suggest looking into if I haven’t acquired the book yet?

    • admin says:

      Hi Andrew – Thanks for the note!! The chapters do indeed refer to the Chapters in the CSS (or CSW) Study Guide. If you are studying for our certifications, you definitely want to get the Study Guide sooner or later. However, if you are interested in studying spirits on a more general level, I recommend the book “The World of Spirits and Cocktails” by Andre Domine. Good luck with your studies!

      • Andrew says:

        Thanks! You’re the second person to suggest that book, after looking at it it’s definitely on my Must-buy list! Can’t wait for my first webinars!

    Can’t wait to get certified. I work as a promoter. Is there a new law that we all have to get certified by Jan. 2016?
