LearnAboutWine.com presents Wine Camp - An introduction to Wine™ 2023
Offered monthly at learnaboutwine.com
After over 25 years of teaching the world about wine, Sommelier Ian Blackburn and his LearnAboutWine team insist this is still his favorite class to teach. “I love making wine more approachable, entertaining and impactful!” At Wine Camp - An Introduction to Wine™ - Ian has hosted over 100,000 students career-to-date. Wine Camp demystifies wine, and we tie all the information back to a 6-7 wine flight where we taste great examples! Learn how to talk about how wine is made; and to describe what you taste! We discuss food and wine pairing techniques, wine storage, and really crack the code on “what is fine wine.” Check out the upcoming calendar for www.TheWineCamp.com and select the date that works best for you. This 2-hour program has changed lives and represents quality wine education - everyone should take a wine camp and improve the wine world one wine class at a time. It also makes a great gift.
