What you'll learn in this intro wine class:

For thousands of years, people have made and enjoyed wine. If it's been around so long, why is it so difficult to Learn About Wine? Why is it so intimidating? 

At WineLA, we know how to demystify this ancient beverage. Whether you’re new to wine, or you’re someone who wants to take your wine knowledge to the next level; Wine Camp is the perfect introductory class. We’ll give you the confidence and foundation you need to explore the world of wine.

This 2-hour wine experience is packed with information. You’ll learn how wine is made, improve your ability to describe wine, find out the best way to serve wine, and we’ll even discuss food and wine pairing. At Wine Camp you’ll explore seven outstanding wines in a fun and relaxed setting. When you’re finished, you’ll be able to enjoy wine at a higher level and make confident purchases with your new, topical insights.

Included in Wine Camp: 

  • How wine is made
  • Lessons on how to taste wine, and to describe what you taste.
  • How to pair food and wine.
  • How to serve wine: The do’s and don'ts!
  • Tips on reading labels, purchasing and storing wine.
  • Insider thoughts about emerging trends in wine that you’ll want to know.
  • Answer any questions you may have - no matter how simple or difficult.
  • Laughter and enjoyment that only a top educator can provide
And of course: A guided tasting of seven great wines to help you acquire the skills you need to elevate your personal wine appreciation.

Question from Anonymous
We would love to do this class but would be 15-20 minutes late. No big deal or kind of better to book on another date when we'd be on time?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The school does not encourage students to come in late, but it will be the student's prerogative. If you'd like to get the most out of the class, it would be better if you come on time.

The class was great. And Ian not only knows a lot about win, but he is also a great story teller.

We weren't allowed in the room until exactly 3:30 pm, course was suppose to be 2 hours long or longer. We were dismissed from class at 5:05 pm. 25 minutes before 2 hours were up. I thought we would learn more about pairing wine with food.

doors opened promptly at 3:30 but class was over just after 5:00. They even sent out email the night before saying class usually runs longer than the 2 hours. Feel like we were cheated out of something. In the hour and half we were there, I hoped to have learn a little more about wine than about Ian's trip to France Would not recommend this class.
