Want to know more about wine but getting bored with wine magazines and listening to sommeliers? You are at the right place. Being a fan of infographics and system-based approach I made this course as easy as possible. Structured, short and sweet. Extremely cool for beginners.
This course is about wine basics, grape varieties and countries.
80% of all wines in the world are made from 20 major grape varieties. It is enough to know the main ones to choose good wine. We study 6 main whites, 5 main reds, and 5 sparkling wines.
You will have a profile for each variety: color, aromas, characteristics, regions and producers, food paring, similar varieties.
We will briefly discuss France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Argentina, and Chile.
You will learn how to read the wine labels of these countries, get essential and structured information about regions and wines that you should definitely try. A list of producers is attached, of course.
You will finally understand what is so particular in expensive French and Italian wines. And if there is any difference between Old and New Worlds.
Welcome on board and let's begin. Cheers!
