4.0/51 Reviews

Founded in 2006, The Wine & Spirit Archive was the first provider of Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Courses in the Pacific Northwest and is Oregon’s exclusive provider of Wine Scholar Guild (WSG) Courses. These world-renowned training programs offer an in-depth and rigorous study of wine for serious wine students and professionals seeking to take their careers and knowledge to the next level.

Mimi Martin started the Portland-based business school after attending New York University in food studies. They offer programs in three locations: their Portland offices, at South Seattle College, and at the Walter Clore Wine & Culinary Center in Prosser, WA.

Along with wine trade certification, they also offer wine-tasting classes open to the public.


The Oregon Department of Education has approval and licensing authority for for-profit/proprietary vocational-technical schools. The Wine & Spirit Archive is not currently listed in their database. This is typical for WSET schools, which tend to skirt state laws.
