This course covers both the ancient world and medieval world of wine.
This course is a complement to the Advanced Regional France and
Advanced Regional Italy Courses.
It presents the rest of Europe to the same level of detail as found
in our other Advanced Regional wine courses. If you would like to take a
detailed, technical course on European wine (other than France or
Italy) you can take this course without being a Level III student.
However, we strongly recommend that you first take the Guild Certification Seminar before attempting a Level III course. You may be enrolled in our Level II Certification program and concurrently take Level III courses.
This course covers the following countries:
- Hungary, Bulgaria and Eastern Europe
You will also learn about
- Geography and terroir
- Wine production techniques by style and region
- Wine growing and obligation requirements for each Appellation in the regions studied
- How to use vintage data, by region
You will receive more than 500 pages of material, specifically designed for this course and taste about 60 to 70 wines.
Class meets every Friday morning starting July 13th to September 21st.
