David Glancy is the founder and Chief Education Officer of San Francisco Wine School. He is one of only 12 people in the world to pass both the Court of Master Sommeliers’ Master exam (MS) and the Society of Wine Educators’ Certified Wine Educator exam (CWE). Glancy has also passed the Certified Specialist of Spirits exam (CSS) and French Wine Scholar exam (FWS). He launched San Francisco Wine School in May 2011. The school provides professional wine studies including French Wine Scholar (FWS), Society of Wine Educators’ programs (SWE),  California Wine Appellation Specialist (CWAS) and much more. Glancy also runs SFsommelier Consulting and is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Sommelier Journal. Previously, he created, managed and taught the Certified Sommelier Program at the Professional Culinary Institute (now known as French Culinary Institute California). During that time, he secured the partnership for the school with the Court of Master Sommeliers and helped roughly 400 students pass the Court of MS’ Certified Sommelier exam (CS). Glancy also taught wine and business management at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. He has worked in the industry for over 15 years, working throughout the U.S. and in Asia and has traveled to many of the wine regions of the world. His first love was a glass of Vouvray, soon followed by another glass. Today he could happily live on Champagne alone.
