Anyone can enjoy the sensual and psychic pleasures of drinking wine. It requires no knowledge or skills other than bringing a glass to the lips and swallowing. The overall sensory experience of wine can be transformed from a simple pleasure to a profound one with just a bit of knowledge of how we experience ‘taste’ and with a basic understanding of the reasons wine can have so many flavours. In this introductory class you will learn about the main types of wine, how the wine is made, tips on buying and cellaring wine and best of all, how to begin to really taste wine.
