The American Sommelier Foundation course is a fun and engaging 6-week series geared toward anyone with a desire to learn the fundamentals of wine.  This class will equip students with a basic understanding of common viticulture and vinification lingo and practices, important wine regions across the globe, and the primary grape varietals for which they’re famous.  Students will learn basic tasting techniques, how to read and interpret labels in your local wine shop and even how to navigate that daunting wine list at your favorite restaurant.   Our goal is to empower students to feel confident in their conversation when selecting wine for all occasions.
