This wine course is a great introduction to wine and wine appreciation. In two evening sessions you will learn about the characteristics of the most important grape varietals, wine regions, and wine styles. More than just fun facts, we'll help you develop a deeper appreciation of the fermented grapes in your glass by teaching you professional tasting techniques as well as what, exactly, makes each glass of wine different. Most importantly, you'll learn to identify which wines you personally like best and why.

We designed the wine course to teach wine in a practical manner

Meaning: we will clarify wine labels, and we will taste and discuss at least 9 wines per evening. This practical approach is fun and will help you to get a quick insight in all aspects of wine and wine tasting. Which will help you to better understand wine-food pairing and enables you to better select wines. The material offered in this wine course is equivalent to the officially recognized SDEN1 level.
