Question about wine courses as a gift

Answered Closed

My fiance is a wine enthusiast and has mentioned the desire to learn more about wine in a formal setting. I browsed your program offerings, but would like to speak to someone about what course would be most appropriate. I want to surprise him for Christmas.

Please call me at **********.

Good Answer


For programs, the answer is an easy one: It’s a choice between The Foundation Program or the Core Program. All students start with one of these, and we mean all. Sommeliers, winemakers, chefs, and wine enthusiasts all start with one of these programs.

The difference between them is that the Core program includes the Intermediate program as well as the Foundation. The Core is a full day program for 8 weeks. The Foundation is a a two hour program every Sunday for 8 weeks.

Hope that answers your questions. If you have any follow up, I’m happy to help.
