Wine 101: Learn About Wine
Thu, October 7, 2021 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Learn About Wine
If you are new to the study of wine — or simply new to the Wine School of Philadelphia — this class is for you. Here, you will experience each of the Wine School’s hallmarks: dispelling industry rumors, banishing popular wine myths, and delivering information in an easy-to-understand manner. Developed by a U.C. Davis winemaker and honed over ten years of teaching experience, it represents a singular view of wine education. Want to learn about wine? Allow us to share our knowledge with you!
Attending this Wine Class as an Online Student?
This class is offered as an in-person class (Premium and Discount Tickets) or a virtual wine tasting (Online Tickets). If you are attending online, we recommend picking up wines via wine.com or wine-searcher.com. The wine list is included on this page.
You don’t need to have the exact wines on the list. It’s unlikely you will be able to find all the wines we use: we have a vast wine cellar, and many of the wines we taste in class are unavailable via retail channels. Instead, we recommend focusing on the varietals we are using, not the vintage or producer. Please note that we cannot ship or sell wines. If you need assistance in purchasing wines, we offer a paid sommelier consulting service.
