Pursue Your Passion!
South Seattle College’s Northwest Wine Academy is the first teaching winery in the Puget Sound region. Our program’s classes are designed for students who are just getting a start in the wine industry and for professionals who need to enhance or update their skills. We offer certificate and degree programs in Winemaking, Wine Marketing and Sales, and Food and Wine Pairing. All our courses are taught by experienced and respected wine professionals.
As a teaching winery, The Northwest Wine Academy’s wines are created from vine to wine by students in the winemaking program. Our wines are sold out of our tasting room, and have received numerous awards, both at the Seattle Wine Awards and the Tri-Cities Wine Festival.
