    And that is accredited by the same Wine groups which do the Som testing.

    In Chicago you pay for the chance to take the test ($450) but you still have to pass it to get the cert. So I'd recommend studying for a year or so, don't want to pay $450 and fail.

    seems kind of a subjective area for testing purposes, unless you only need know the history, locations of manufacture, mashbills, basic profiles, etc.
