This month I’ve been invited to Clark College to host an updated version of the popular Wine 101 Class from Salut! to be held Tuesday, April 27th from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
The Corporate and Continuing Education programs at Clark College are taking advantage of the newest addition to their campus, a full kitchen at their new hi-tech Columbia Tech Center campus in East Vancouver. The Cooking and Wine School programs include a wide range of inexpensive ways to enhance your knowledge repertoir.
Wine 101 is a fun 2-hour class that will demonstrate the different components of wine, 6 different grapes, different glasses, and the information that ties them all together. How to describe flavors, how to pair wines with food, what stemware to use, and how to serve & store wines will all be covered in this informative session. It’s only $45 per person, including wine! Sign up today!
The Sommelier Series
In addition to Wine 101, I’ll be complimenting the coursework with three additional Sommelier Series classes for enhanced wine expertise. These classes will extend focus on an array of grapes and regions. Wine afficianados, restaurant and grocery store stewards, hobbyists and winery employees can earn Continuing Education Credit certificates for this trio of courses to enhance their resume and skills. Each class features sampling of an array of 8 wines and 2 hours of instruction.
The Sommelier Series classes start with Advanced Wine Expertise on March 17th. Each of 8 different major grapes is featured as a representation for 8 different important aspects of fine wine production such as grape clones, oak barrels, blending, geography and more.
Next up on March 24th is New World Wine Regions including the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and South America. In this class, each region’s recent history will be featured along with the most important wines of that area.
Finally, the trio is capped on June 6th with a brand new class on Old World Wine Regions including a tour of European wines. Experience wines from France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Portugal.
The Sommelier Series trio is offered as a combo for just $110 for all three 2-hour sessions.
