Wine Educator Course

Wine Classes NYC

Do you want to achieve the most comprehensive understanding of wine and consider yourself a wine expert? Would you like to communicate your passion to others by teaching in our Wine Tastings or in a wine shop, wine bar, or restaurant? Then our wine educator program is just what you want! In it, you will be tasting and analyzing over 50 wines from all over the globe over the course of 13 weeks!

 

The professional

On the American wine scene, when referring to the professional figure able to select, recommend, or talk about wine, one uses the terms Wine Educator, Wine Expert, Sommelier, or even Wine Ambassador pretty much interchangeably, each of which generally has the same level of training. We definitely prefer the term Wine Educator, since we want to concentrate on the mission of the person who “educates” about wine: to speak about and communicate wine. So, the Wine Educator is an expert in wine who demonstrates a particular skill in describing and talking about wine. S/he is truly an “actor” who can command an intense level of attention from an audience, thanks to a mastery of the correct terminology and the ability to describe subjects in a concise yet complete fashion.

Wine Tasting Classes NYC

Right in the pulsating heart of the Big Apple, we invite you to take our four-hour wine course to master the world of wine, international wine-growing regions, wine-tasting techniques, and wine service.

 

Why our Wine Classes last twice as long

Our Wine 101 classes in NYC and in other American cities always last four hours, which is twice as long as classes offered by other schools. The reason is simple: we want to give you even more opportunity to understand the world of wine, even though you are starting with the basic fundamentals as students do in our Wine 101. Wine 101 gives you an understanding of, and appreciation for wine, and although the class is only two hours, the course is serious and its results impressive.

And additional valuable point is that if you are passionate about the world of wine, those who complete our Wine 101 often decide to pursue their wine knowledge by taking a Wine Educator course. In fact, the first day of that course is identical with Wine 101.

Who Wine 101 is designed for

Wine-lovers, aspirant sommeliers, and anyone who wants to gain a better knowledge of the world of wine, for purposes of work or pleasure. Attending the NYC wines classes will be of great use for those who need to widen their wine knowledge to be more professional in the wine, tourism, or restaurant sectors.

The syllabus of our wine classes covers the following areas:

 

  1. History of wine;
  2. Grapegrowing practices;
  3. Main vinification methods;
  4. The techniques for sensory evaluation of wine: visual (appearance), olfactory (nose), and tasting (palate).

 

The class will give you a comprehensive overview of the role and influence of wine on our contemporary culture. This global scope is unique among all the wine classes in NYC.

 

What you will learn to do

  • Select wines with confidence;
  • Discuss the important characteristics of the main kinds of wine;
  • Master the principles of wine and food pairing;
  • Learn responsible and knowledgeable enjoyment of wine
  • Cellar your wines in the most appropriate fashion.

 

How Wine 101 works

Our program for in-depth wine appreciation lasts four hours and ensures you the opportunity to learn about and taste wine in the most rapid and complete manner possible. This is an exciting immersion that will give you the ability to recognize wines, their qualities, and their defects.

Under the guidance of our instructors, you will learn the basic techniques of wine-tasting, and you will put those principles into immediate practice by tasting a total of six top-quality wines: 2 reds, 2 whites, and 2 Proseccos.

Our wine classes in NYC take place in the evenings over the weekend, in order to accommodate students’ work schedules.

WINE TASTING NYC

Start off on your journey through the pleasures of wine, heading to one of the countries most famous for excellence of its wines, Italy. You will revel in the fragrances and tastes of famed Italian wines, better understand their growing areas, how they are made, and why they have been considered for centuries among the finest wines in the world.

Our Wine Educators and our Sommeliers will guide through the sensory analysis and tasting of six of the most famous Italian wines, from Italy’s most prestigious growing areas:

  • Tuscany
  • Piedmont
  • Veneto

Using your senses of sight, smell, and taste, you will be initiated into an appreciation of the qualities of these Italian wines, discovering and savoring the utterly distinctive flavors that are the ideal partners to a wide range of dishes, antipasti, and desserts.

You will learn how to recognize their growing areas, how they are made, how they are best served at table and at what temperature, and you will learn the principles of pairing them with food.

 

What you will taste

Our Wine Educators will guide you through a tasting of six top-quality Italian wines:

  • Chianti
  • Nebbiolo
  • Prosecco

How the program works

As with all our NYC Wine Tastings, there will be about 20 participants. After our Wine educator illustrates the characteristics of the wine to be tasted and their growing areas, s/he will guide you through a tasting of the six wines.

Duration and participant age

The Wine Tasting lasts two hours, from 7.00 to 9.00pm. They generally take place in restaurants or specialized tasting venues. Participants’ ages range from 26 to 45 years.

Each individual wine tasting is designed as an exclusive event, with a limited number of participants. All participants will be furnished with tasting notes, full background information, and everything necessary for sensory analysis of the wines.

We offer our tastings on premises that are completely equipped for tasting and sensory analysis, focusing on 6 sought-after wines carefully selected from Italy’s most prestigious wine producers.

Wine Tasting NYC | 6 Wines & 6 Cheeses

WINE TASTING NYC

The pleasure of wine, a combination of fragrances, flavors, tastes, and finish, has always had as its complement the equal pleasure of cheese. For centuries, the culture of wine and cheese pairings has embodied this culinary marriage as one of the most sublime moments in the “duet of fine taste.”

Our Wine and Cheese Tasting in NYC is a learning adventure completely dedicated to these two foods. It is designed to enable you to select with confidence the most appropriate combinations among the hundreds of choices of wines and cheeses that you will find every day in the shops of NYC.

 

What you will learn

Our Wine Educators will teach you how to select the ideal wine complement to each cheese, based on acidity, tannins, and the respective composition of the wine and cheeses.

 

What you will taste

Our Wine and Cheese Tasting is centered around six wines and six cheeses, and on how they pair together. The wines are mainly French and Italian, as are the cheeses, which are either aged or very young, depending on their pairing with their complementary wine.

 

How the program works

In contrast to the wine tastings, in the Wine and Cheese Tasting, participants not only taste wines but match them with, and sample cheeses. These classes, too, average 20 participants and are guided by one of our Wine Educators.

 

Duration, location, participant age

The Wine and Cheese Tastings last two hours, from 7.00 to 9.00pm. They generally take place in restaurants or specialized tasting venues. Participants’ ages range from 26 to 45 years.
