Anyone can drink wine, but it takes practice to be able to recognize a wine's characteristics. In this introductory class, you will learn about wine types, tasting techniques and terms, how smell and taste are integral to the enjoyment of wine, the proper way to serve wine and even the selection of proper wine glasses.

You'll come away from this course with more confidence to select your next bottle of wine. Cheers!
