What You Will Learn in Wine Essentials 2

This is a very exciting program that opens up new areas of knowledge for you. Now that you have mastered the foundational wine skills in Wine Essentials 1 we introduce the world of vinification and viticulture to you. You will learn how wine is made and how vineyards are managed.

With each course there is a recommended wine list that is appropriate to the course. We strongly encourage you to try these wines during the course of your studies.

We take you across the world where you now discover the different and important regions of each wine producing country. You are invited to visually see the culinary delights of major wine making countries and you are also introduced to new countries that are equally important in the world of wine but not mentioned often.

There is a special section that defines and explains the different career paths that are open to wine students once they have more credentials in wine. Upon completion of this course you will be confident to talk about wine with friends and colleagues and even consider a new career.

This is a self-paced course and should take approximately 19-25 hours including study time to complete. There will be videos, maps and study material to supplement all the courses.
