Understanding the Essential Wines of the World: Live Online Tasting Course -- Chicago
"The Essential Wines of the World" -- July 2014
A Live (Online) Interactive Wine Tasting Course with Sommelier Jörn Kleinhans
Attention Wine Enthusiasts and Restaurant Professionals:
Would you like to learn more about the great wines of the world -- tasting wines from top regions, guided by knowledgeable wine experts?
Do you live in a region of the United States that makes pursuing systematic wine education and attending wine appreciation events difficult?
Would you like to have close instruction on wine appreciation from certified experts, in the comfort of your own home, without going to the expense of sourcing wines and paying for a live educator?
In our upcoming course, “The Essential Wines of the World,” enthusiasts from around the United States will come together in an online forum to taste some of the most important wines of the world together. Not just the same wine types, but the very same wines the instructor will discuss in detail.
Here’s how it works: When you enroll in the course, we’ll ship all the necessary wines directly to your home right away, together with 6 professional-grade, Austrian crystal Riedel wine glasses -- as well as a copy of the market-leading book on wine, The Wine Bible by Karen MacNeil. We’ll also send you course materials, key reference resources, and other valuable wine information.

This innovative live seminar is designed to be a fast-paced, fun and effective kick-starter for novices and experienced wine tasters alike, to learn better methods of discerning important wines from one another, for greater personal enjoyment -- or to launch a professional career as a sommelier in a high-end restaurant.
For more experienced drinkers and collectors, this will provide a highly valuable “industry insider’s” view, with many wine buying, storage and drinking tips that can enhance your enjoyment of wine and save you huge amounts of mis-spent time and money from common mistakes made by hobbyist collectors.
Course attendees will log in via laptop, tablet or computer on Saturday afternoons this July 2014 to receive:
After just three weeks, you’ll have a clear road map for easily navigating the complex world of wine, and you’ll be able to look forward to a future of significantly enhanced wine appreciation. You’ll learn skills and etiquette for enjoying wine in any social or business setting, and wield an impressive array of knowledge.
In addition to a binder full of valuable course materials and information (alone worth the price of admission), you’ll receive a copy of Karen MacNeil’s renowned encyclopedia of wine, The Wine Bible.
Time: Three subsequent Saturdays in July, starting on July 12th at 1pm PDT, 2pm MDT, 3pm CDT. Each seminar will last 3 hours.
Cost: This three-week intensive course, including wines, glasses and course materials, is priced at $879.
Our Guarantee: If for any reason you decide during the first session that the course is not for you, we’ll gladly give you a pro-rated refund for the tuition of the remaining sessions—no hard feelings, no questions asked. You can put the wines and glasses to use entertaining friends and family, and you can keep The Wine Bible and all of the course materials and information resources as a gift from us.

What recent past attendees thought:
"I thought the course was VERY INFORMATIVE AND INTERESTING! I am a wine novice, just casually enjoyed wine, and had next to no knowledge…..I felt it gave so much information and I am totally hooked, and want to keep learning! – I will definitely take it again, or the certification course. I am also going to refer a few friends."
"I really enjoyed the class. I had been looking for some sort of low pressure, fun sommelier educational class for over a year and I feel so fortunate to have come across your class. I thought things were organized and ran very well. I liked how fast paced and extremely educational it was. I am impressed with how much I learned in such a short time period. Thank you for doing a great job!"
