Wine Basics Course Schedule

The purpose of the Basics Class is to make one totally wine literate. Although no prior knowledge is required, virtually every aspect of wine will be discussed, with an eye to sales and marketing. This eight-week course consists of two-hour long sessions held weekly, in which we explore wine-related subjects such as wine and food matching, viticulture, and restaurant wait staff training, as well as in-depth discussions on specific wine regions followed by a wine tasting from that region. 

All classes are approximately two hours in length. The Monday classes start promptly at 11:00 AM. The Tuesday classes start at 6:00 PM. Both are held at the City Winery Boston (1 Canal Street, Boston, MA 02114) and are taught by our Corporate Wine Educator, Len Presutti, CWE (Certified Wine Educator, Society of Wine Educators). Attendance is limited. Please contact your Sales Representative concering participation.
