Sommelier Level I

Tuesday Aug 29, 2017 - Oct 17, 2017
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Sommelier Victor Orozco

This is a basic course for people interested in becoming a sommelier. Also suitable for a restaurant owner or manager who wants to expand his/her wine knowledge or simply someone who wants to have a better grasp of what a professional sommelier needs to know. Wine history, wine regions, grape varieties, wine making techniques, tastings, service, wine and food pairings, decanting, and wine temperatures will be covered. All of this will be complemented with a full understanding of New and Old World wine styles through tastings of wines from all over the world. Every two weeks there will be a tasting of at least three of the most representative wines from a major region. There will be a final test and a short essay in order to complete the class. Students scoring at least 70 points in their Sommelier Test will receive a Certificate of Participation signed by Uncorking the Bottle and Armand Cottin (Burgandy, France). Students are requested to bring their own glass/crystal clear wine glasses (2-3) to class. You must be 21 or older to attend.
