Cool Climate Wines of the World

WINE, SPIRITS, TASTING, PAIRING, SERVICE, AND BEYOND: AN 11 Session program to help students develop a foundational knowledge in a broad array of fine beverages. Designed for both industry professionals and beginners alike.

Join us in unraveling the mysteries of the EU labeling scheme and compare it with the rest of the world.  We will look for global patterns as we tour the world by glass. Take in the highlights of crisp wines from cool climates from Germany, Austria, Northern Italy, Northern France, Oregon and New Zealand. The guided tasting of 6-8 wines will focus on New World vs Old World and examples of Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

This workshop may be taken as part of our Somm Essentials program or individually a la carté. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the program tuition if you would like to continue on. Payment plans are available for the full series.
