This is a synchronous online wine course. Classes happen online and offline simultaneously. Online students have the same access and resources as those sitting in the brick-and-mortar classroom. We have discounted these seats by $200 as an introductory offer to those who want to attend but cannot due to COVID-19. A list of recommended wines will be supplied prior to class.

For centuries, France has long been the world’s greatest wine-producing country. Its wines are the global gold standard, prized by collectors, and its winemaking regions each offer unique tasting experiences, from the spice of Bordeaux to the berry notes of Madiran. Although grape variety, climate, and the skill of the winemaker are essential in making good wine, the foundation of a wine’s character is the soil in which its grapes are grown.

In this wine course, we take the student on a tour of the French winemaking regions to illustrate how the soil, underlying bedrock, relief, and microclimate shape the personality of a wine. This eight-week program covers the full gamut of French wines:

  1. Champagne
  2. Alsace, Jura, Savoie
  3. Burgundy, Beaujolais
  4. Southern  & Northern Rhone
  5. Languedoc & Provence
  6. Loire Valley
  7. Satellite Bordeaux & SW France
  8. Traditional Bordeaux

This course provides a detailed understanding of the variety of French wine as well as a look at the viticultural history of France.  Both the uninitiated wine student and the confirmed sommelier will find much to savor in this delightful wine course.
