Think you know your Nebbiolo from your Counoise grape variety? What year would be the best Riesling to sip on? Making the right choice in a supermarket aisle or looking at a wine menu during a date can be a daunting experience.
For many of us, ordering wine in a restaurant is like shooting darts with our eyes closed. We set the bar quite low for ourselves when it comes to defining success, and often we’re content just to hit the board. We may aim for a delicious wine (and strive not to embarrass ourselves in the process), but how can we expect to consistently nail our target when we’re shooting blind?
In this unique introductory online course, Amelia Singer combines a rigorously thorough understanding of wine with a witty and charming ambience – you will finish the course energized and confident about your own abilities to order wine in restaurants.
If you choose the expert version of the course, Amelia will advise you personally to meet your own objectives for the course. You will come away with the confidence to choose the right wine for you, for the right occasion.
The course covers wines from California, Australia, France, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina and many more.
You will learn how to taste like a professional, how to store & serve wine, & taste over 12 wines from the world’s top wine regions. When you book your course, you will be sent your case of wine from Berry Bros and Rudd to accompany the course, which you will be asked to taste throughout your recommended 4 weeks.
