Wine Spectator School

Class 1: Before You Taste -- and See and Sniff




Please note that the title of Class 1 is not "Become a Wine Expert in 90 Minutes."

You may recall that the title of this course in not "Become a Wine Expert in One Easy Seminar."

You will not become a wine expert by taking this course any more than I became fluent in Russian during my freshman year in college (even though I practically lived in the language lab).

You will get some more tasting experience and you will learn more about
  • What to look for in a glass of wine

  • How to find it

  • What it might...
