Notify me when space is available:



This fast-paced, comprehensive 1-day intensive workshop focuses on important foundational areas for personal and professional success including blind wine tasting analysis, food & wine pairing, and professional wine service techniques. Created by Master Sommelier David Glancy, this class is perfect for students studying for beginning and intermediate level sommelier exams and those who want to improve their performance on the job.  Enthusiasts also enjoy this eye opening day of personal development!  Taste over 12 wines throughout the workshop.

Students looking for a slower pace, deeper study of these topics or a more comprehensive look at all aspects of the beverage industry should consider our Somm Essentials program.
