My husband and I are interested in taking the Foundation course. Is it worthwhile to also take any of the individual courses like Wine 101 and the france versus italy class? Also, how many weeks is the semester long Foundation course? We are excited by your offerings and come away fro the website feeling overwhelmed and unable to make a decision!!

Thank you!

Hi Jean,

Thank you for contacting us, and for your interest in our courses!

If you like, you can take an individual class at the Wine School before making the commitment to a full program course. Wine 101 is a great choice, as are other selections in our “Learn About Wine Series” for beginners (these classes are all priced at $39.98). However, it’s not essential to do so. Most students just jump right into the Core program.

If you decide you would like to move forward, we offer our full Diploma program four times per year. We begin in January, March, August and October. Normally the program is 8 weeks long, and students meet once a week for two hours. The exception is the August class, which combines the full eight-week course into 6 days.

Please let me know if I can help answer any other questions for you.
