What you'll learn in this wine making class:

Foundation Course is designed to provide an in-depth overview of major grape varieties and their regions, in addition to a focused introduction to tasting and sensory analysis. The 6-week course also covers key concepts of grape-growing and winemaking. 


The goal is to expose students to the impact of climate and soil on a grape’s expression in the glass, in a fun and engaging atmosphere

Course Outline

  • Introduction: an introduction to how grapes are grown, wine is made, tasting components and procedure
  • France: from Burgundy to Bordeaux to the Rhône and beyond
  • Spain: Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rias Baixas, Cava and more
  • Italy: touching on some benchmark grapes and styles from the land of a thousand varieties
  • Southern Hemisphere: Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand
