About Cellar Muse

Cellar Muse Wine School is a local Seattle Wine School run by Tanya Morningstar Darling, the French Wine Scholar Instructor of the Year 2018 and the Bourgogne Wines Official Ambassador. The school is located in downtown Seattle in the Soma Towers. We are unsure if they have a brick-and-mortar facility or if the school uses the building’s event space on the second floor.

Tanya is on the faculty of the top-ranked Napa Valley Wine Academy and the Northwest Wine Academy at South Seattle College. Her career in wine started in 2000 when she took Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) classes after finishing her BFA at the prestigious Tish School of Arts. She has worked as a wine educator since 2006 and founded the Cellar Muse Wine School in 2017. She was named one of SOMM’s Top Wine Instructors.

Wine Programs Offered

The school is an affiliate of the Society of Wine Educator’s Online Academy and the Wine Scholar Guild. The school also offers a series of in-person classes. The school is also an affiliate of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. In Washington, private vocational schools like Cellar Muse are registered by the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board. However, cellar Muse is not currently listed as accredited. 

Professional Certification

The Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board registers private vocational schools in Washington State. However, Wine Muse is not listed in their database as of this writing. They use terms like “wine certification courses” but do not claim to train sommeliers or professionals.
