Crash Course – Level 2

We are excited to introduce the Level 2 One Day Express Crash Course in Wine. Level 1 covered the fundamentals of Sparkling, White, Rosé and Red Wines. Level 2 has a more advanced focus.

    • How Chenin Blanc was stolen from the Old World and now a world-class thumper in the New World
    • A look into classic Left Bank & Right Bank Bordeaux compared with New World counterparts
    • A New World Nebbiolo taking on a classic Barolo
  • Understanding Oak
    • French Oak vs. American Oak: what are the differences?
    • American Oak Shiraz tackling a French Oak Syrah
