Benjamin Spencer, AIWS/DWS

Through this site and The Etna Wine School, I offer professional enological services, assistance with trade communications, judging of wine competitions, and professional training for staff. For questions or to contact me, please visit the CONTACT page.


I offer private and professional enological consultation for craft wine brands around the world. In addition to holding a Diploma from the London-based Wine & Spirit Education Trust, I am an author, journalist, wine judge, and award-winning winemaker with more than a decade of experience working with artisan and internationally traded wine brands in California and Sicily, Italy.


Wine can seem overwhelming and confusing at times. By learning about the traditions and current practices of the global wine trade we are able to bring the world of wine into focus. I offer wine list creation, front-of-house training, and various educational courses for wine lovers and trade professionals.


I am available for private training and the creation of a la carte communications strategies for the wine trade. By designing and implementing innovative domestic and international programs using traditional media outlets, social media, and on-site representation, I am able to help your brand achieve maximum exposure in various markets.
