Quick Wine Course - 4 evenings

It's tough to be in high demand!

We’re not talking about Bordeaux wine futures, but the busy and often unpredictable schedule of professionals in Zürich. Consulting engagements, deadlines, unreasonable demands from clients and then holiday globetrotting for relaxation. Sound familiar? When you want to understand the fundamentals of wine but are short on time, our 4-evening Quick Course provides an excellent, practical baseline to begin navigating the world of wine.

Course Goals >

Stop ordering the same wine over and over.

In just four weeknights, we can make you comfortable with the world's most-encountered wines and ready to explore new horizons. We designed our four-week “quick course” to bust common wine myths, eliminate pretensiousness and expand your comfort zone in short time, with the following goals:

1. Gain familiarity with the world’s major wine types, both whites and reds
2. Understand style differences between European & New World wines
3. Learn how wine and food make each other better

We focus on the world’s most popular white and red wine grapes to quickly orient you to the widest selection. By comparing European wines to other popular world regions and exploring local food pairings, you’ll understand style differences and why you should always think local food, local wine! Plus it’s a great way to meet some new people in Zürich.


The Program >

Class 1.  The "Fantastic Five":  White wine varietals
Class 2.  The "Fantastic Five":  Red wine varietals
Class 3.  Find Your Style 1: International grapes, styles from Europe vs. the New World
Class 4.  Find Your Style 2: Sparkling wines, blending & climate effects on wines

Additional Info >

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?  Wine beginners or those with some experience for whom time is tight, but who want to understand wine fundamentals and expand their list of favorite wines.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO MISS A CLASS?  Don't worry if you have to miss a class, expectedly or unexpectedly, as you are welcome to attend that class in a future session free of charge, provided space is available.
