Want to know more about the Texas wine industry, history, its evolution and how to pick the best Texas wines? Well, now it is easier than ever to get certified as a Specialist of Texas Wine from Dr. Russ Kane and the Texas Wine School.

The next upcoming Level 1 class is scheduled for two consecutive Wednesday evenings September 13th and 20th (6:30-9:30p CT), with the 1 hour examination given on Thursday September 21st. This arrangement makes it easier since there are now only two evenings to commit with longer sessions. The classes are presented live via Zoom by Dr. Russ Kane Texas wine writer, educator, naturalist and VintageTexas blogger.

Reviews from Level 1 students include the following:

“Simply Perfect!”

“This class met my expectations and the material provided was of high quality.”

“Texas Tempranillo and Aglianico will now be on my watch list.”

Also included is a copy of Dr. Kane’s book, “The Wineslinger Chronicles: Texas on the Vine” that was made part of The Grover E. Murray Culture in the American Southwest historical book series.  The class also features guest presenters actively involved in the Texas wine industry.

This is the 8th year that this popular course has been held with now over 300 certified Specialist of Texas Wine respectfully wearing the silver lapel pin that displays their accomplishment and state of Texas wine knowledge. Now that the class is presented via Zoom, certified specialists come from all parts of Texas, and we now have Texas wine specialists certified in Colorado, California and Louisiana.

Love to taste, talk and tweet about Texas wines and where they are in the global scheme for wines. After all that's the only way they will reach the full potential.
