CSW® stands for Certified Specialist of Wine and is a test administered by the Society of Wine Educators® which tests the candidates knowledge of the world of wine. It’s a sought-after certification that is typically taken by those that work in the wine industry, mainly in production or distribution.

The first step to preparing for the test is to go to the Society of Wine Educators® website and purchase a seat at the exam. During purchase, you’ll have two options for taking the test:

  1. In Person: After purchase, you will receive a study guide (book) in the mail and an authorization code via email. With the authorization code, you can schedule a date to take the exam within one year at a Pearson VUE testing center.
  2. Online: You will be sent ProctorU information via email after purchasing the exam on the SWE Website. ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows you to take your CSW® exam through a computer at home. The biggest benefit is the ability to access ProctorU 24/7, however, you will need still need to schedule your proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance.

The test is 100% theory (written exam) and there is no tasting component. The test consists of 100 multiple choice questions with 4 choices for each question and one hour to complete it. A passing score is 75% or higher.

Each exam is different. For example, the person sitting next to you will have a different CSW® test than the one you have, as test questions are randomized and rotated.

When you finally complete your exam in person, you will be notified by mail within several weeks whether you passed or not. ProctorU test takers will receive their results immediately.
