The Society of Wine Educators' Annual Conference is the longest running wine education event. For over 43 years, SWE has been providing an opportunity for educators, students, and enthusiasts to come together to learn more about wine and spirits. 

We provide resources for educators to take back and integrate into their own programs. We provide students the opportunity to learn from and engage with the top educators in the field. With over 50 sessions and master classes each year, our conferences will provide you the opportunity to learn and study something new and exciting.
