About this Course 

Welcome to the next steps toward your path to understanding and enjoying wine. In this course I will answer a question which comes up very often when I’m teaching wine classes. Do wines come in different styles?  What are the styles of wine?  For most of us, when we begin our journey into wine, our first sip is a sweet wine. This is a category of a wine style, and one of the wine styles you’ll be learning about in this course.

What better way to learn about Wine Styles than to explore wine grapes that are most familiar to every wine drinker, regardless of palate experience. I like to call these “The Classic Wine Grapes.” You may recall these grapes from our other course - How To Taste Wine.

What is included:

  • You will have a refresher of  the “Classic” Wine Grapes
  • You will have a refresher of  How to Taste Wine  
  • Wine recommendations (see NOTE below)
  • You will learn what the different Wine Styles are   
  • Workbook for you to keep
  • Video Wine Tasting Exercises with a list of supplies and wines
  • Quizzes to help you retain what you've learned
  • Final Exam
  • 3 months unlimited use

Benefit from taking the course:

  • Get a better understanding about different wines and styles
  • Discover your Wine Palate
  • Be a more confident when tasting wine

Who should take this course:

This course is not just for the beginner. It is designed for anyone wanting to expand on or refresh their wine and food tasting skills and knowledge.
