Over the past two months, I’ve been teaching wine classes for the San Francisco-based wine school, Discover Wine & Spirits. The school offers classes for the very beginner to the advanced.
Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) – the school offers both the Level 2 Intermediate and Level 3 Advanced courses for the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. The WSET was founded in 1969 to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits. Since then, WSET has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a suite of sought-after qualifications. I will be teaching the Level 2 Intermediate course this weekend and again in April.

The French Wine Program affiliates are Burgundy Wine Board (BIVB), Loire Valley Wine and Champagne Bureaus and materials supplied by: BIVB, Inter Beaujolais, Interrhone, Provence Wines, Champagne Bureau, CIVC and Loire Valley Wine Bureau. the next series of these classes will be held in April and May.
Italian Wine Series – The Italian Wine Series is a two-day intensive on the wines of this ancient region. It is intended for the more advanced student. The next offering of this course is in May.
