Seriously fun wine education.
The Capital Wine School was founded by Jay Youmans MW with the vision of offering the highest quality wine education and tasting instruction available in the Washington, DC area. Our classes and events are fun and unpretentious, but offer the depth of knowledge and insight sought by those wanting to learn more about wine.
All our courses place particular emphasis on tasting skills and the essential knowledge required for understanding wine. Our mission is simple: we want to help you learn about, appreciate, and enjoy wine. And have fun doing it!

In addition to our regular monthly featured tastings, we offer beginning and intermediate classes such as Introduction to Wine Basics (IWB – 101), and Essential (Blind) Wine Tasting Skills (BWTS – 201).
