A word from the Managing Director

Promoting the value and uniqueness of Champagne has been one of our fundamental missions for many years. Since its creation more than 80 years ago, the Comité Champagne has been involved in training initiatives, particularly in France, Great Britain, the United States and Belgium.

Today, the Comité Champagne and its eight Bureaux around the world train thousands of professionals and future professionals every year, both face-to-face and online.

The Comité Champagne occupies a special place in the world of wine education. Because our content is the result of a consensus between all the people of Champagne, following our courses guarantees a holistic vision of Champagne.

We hope you enjoy our courses and wish you every success.

Selection of our partner centers


To guarantee high-quality training provided by qualified professionals, the Comité Champagne carefully selects its partner centres in France and abroad. We only work with recognised centres with objective and enthusiastic staff. Many of these centres also offer courses run by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET).

All the experts who give our training courses are specially trained by the Comité Champagne to ensure they have a global vision and all the knowledge they need to teach you about the wines of Champagne.
