Rudd Center



The Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies

The Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies has drawn more than 15,000 students to professional wine classes, Wine Lovers Boot Camps, and weekend classes for enthusiasts. It is home to innovative wine and beverage education offerings including the CIA’s Accelerated Wine and Beverage Certificate Program and Advanced Wine, Beverage, and Hospitality bachelor’s degree concentration.

There’s simply no setting like the Napa Valley to study wines and beverages—and no facility more exquisitely crafted for the job than the Rudd Center.

  • Learn in state-of-the-art wine sensory classrooms.
  • Taste at thoughtfully designed individual stations with color-correct illumination.
  • Share your findings via wireless keypad response system technology.
  • Sample and pair wines selected from our extensive wine cellar.

The Rudd Center is also considered the optimal training ground for the wine industry to educate its staff.
