International Wine Guild: Advanced Regional New World Wine Course
October 2, 2012 (Tue)
from 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Wine OR Wine & Food
The New World covers all of those countries “discovered” after 1492. This is because wine is a Eurocentric invention and was not consumed in any New World country until the Europeans arrived. There is one exception: the “Nuevo-New World.” An in-depth knowledge of New World wine is critical to the wine professional and serious wine student.
This is a required course for the Level III Certification. If you would like to take a detailed, technical course on New World wine 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 regional course.
This course covers the following New World Countries:
- United States
- New Zealand
- Uruguay and the rest of South America
- China and the far east (the “Neuvo-New World”}
- South Africa
You will also learn about:
- Geography and climate
- Wine production techniques
- How to use vintage data, by region or country
- Wine character data, by appellation
- You will receive more than 600 pages of material, specifically designed for this course and taste about 100 wine
