PreSomm Course Book  

PreSomm Maps & Graphics Book

"PreSomm was created to enthuse and educate its readers about the world of wine and proper wine service, in addition to providing a perfect foundation for students seeking future wine certifications." 

-Denise Mueller, Founder/Writer

The PreSomm Maps & Graphics are designed for wine students, having just enough detail but no unnecessary content, creating a streamlined learning experience. The Maps & Graphics book being separate from the Course Book allows the students/readers to fully enjoy their PreSomm experience without needing to flip back and forth.

PreSomm Course Book is an 8-section book full of wine theory data, beautiful infographics, recommended study topics, links to quiz questions and exam questions, and links to online flash cards! We also have recommended wines to purchase for each section - to further enhance your regional knowledge.
