This workshop is designed for the individual who enjoys drinking wine but also seeks more experience in wine evaluation from an expert's point of view. You may use your new experience in wine tasting at a restaurant, tasting room, or even with friends!
Each two-hour session will include an introduction to the topic, a brief lecture, an information packet and specific examples or standards for tasting. The second hour of the session provides a range of wines chosen to highlight the subject being discussed.
The program is divided into four sessions:
