Discover the world of wines and spirits

The world of wine is fascinating . From the ancient Roman time until today, It has never stopped evolving. 

 

Considering wine as an important component of many ancient cultures is key to understand the complexity of it, might it be related to appellations, styles, grape varieties and more. France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Georgia, Greece and many more all have centuries of history related to wine. 

However, regions with a more recent culture of wine, called the new world, are progressivley building a wine culture, different from the old world. This makes the world of wine such diverse and enjoyable. 

At Luxembourg Wine & Spirit Academy, we consider the world of wine as a limitless playfield of experiences. We love to see students being surprised by a wine they even never heard about a minute before. Above everything, we want our students to become knowledgeable ambassadors of wine and we put extra efforts in this. 

Sharing our passion for wines do not limit us to it. We are equally passionate by other enjoyable liquids. Japanese Sake, spirits, beer are other elements of the knowledge we want to share with our students and future students

When establishing our school, it appeared clearly that the WSET awards in wines fit perfectly with our idea of the wine world. 

Quality wine is today produced almost everywhere in the world. At LWSA we promote open minded approach to wines. Everyone has a preference when it comes to personal taste. However, we want everyone to be able to recognize and appreciate a quality wine made anywhere in the world. 

No boundaries, no premade ideas is our motto!

We chose to establish our school in Luxembourg for a few reasons. First of all, we, the founders, Cédric and Geoffrey, have been working in the Grand Duchy for more than 10 years. We appreciate the international aspect of the country, the mix of origins and cultures binding all together in this tiny region.  Also Luxembourg has a long history of wine production, being located along the Mosel river. The culture of wine is strong in the country and locals have developped a solid culture and knowledge of wines, primarily from the homeland and surrounding countries (France, Germany) but also from all over the world. This makes Luxembourg the perfect location for a wine school. 

Last but not least, the country is in the center of Europe, easily reachable by train (2 hours from Paris), by plane (2 hours max from anywhere in Europe), by road.
