This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Sommeliers need the ability to identify the aromas and flavours of different grape varietals. Students delve beyond the common varietals and discover lesser-known grapes. Emphasis is on identifying the characteristics, history, origin and preferred viticultural conditions of the world's most popular grape varietals. Through tasting, students distinguish classic grapes, develop an appreciation for each variety's characteristics and subtleties and examine how wine makers harness these subtleties to create a wine style identity exclusive to their region.
