  • Learn basic wine evaluation techniques
  • Learn wine visual evaluation
  • Learn about wine smell evaluation via a smell exercise of the 30 most common smells in wine
  • Learn about wine taste evaluation via a taste exercise to learn how to distinguish tannins, acids, sugars and alcohol in wine

Lunch is provided as part of your tuition.
