Want to know the secrets of the sommelier? Want to know the wine hacks that every Master Sommelier uses to ensure wine tastes great, each and every time?

You don’t get named as a top sommelier in Philly — by CBS News and Philly Weekly– without learning a trick or two. You don’t get named the top wine school in America by SOMM without knowing how to teach these skills to everyone and anyone. In this class, we let you in on the trade secrets that will change how you buy and serve wine.

This is an introductory course, so even if you haven’t taken a Wine 101 class, you will feel right at home. Want to know how to make an inexpensive wine taste like an expensive one? Want to be able to buy wine by just looking at the fine print on the label? Want to spend less money but get better quality wine? Of course you do!

In this two-hour wine tasting class, we will reveal the four essential secrets to finding your inner sommelier, and much more.
