That's right! We've made it to the big leagues here at the Asheville School of Wine. We were approached by AB Tech's fantastic Craft Beverage Institute about adding some classes on wine to go along with their courses on Beer. Of course we excitedly agreed!
The course was designed to provide practical wine knowledge and service to professionals who are currently in the wine industry or want to get into the industry. We also wanted it to serve as a "first step" towards Sommelier Certification through one of the Sommelier Guilds.
In our 12 hour course we covered everything from opening bottles of wine and Champagne, to blind tasting, careers in wine, sensory analysis, and steps of service. It also covered lots and lots of information on wines and wine regions of the world.
It was a fantastic experience and something I'm looking for ward to doing again. We will teach the same course again in early 2020. Contact AB Tech if you are interested in taking this course.
