Do you know the difference between viticulture and enology? Learn the species and varieties of grapes used in winemaking and the difference between clones, crosses, hybrids and grafting. Study the physical structure of the vine, the annual lifecycle and the metabolic processes. Learn about terroir and sustainable farming. Next our studies take us inside the winery to learn wine production techniques for all styles of wines and the myriad of options for the winemaker. We tie it all together to understand how the decisions in the vineyard and in the cellar impact the style and quality of the final product.
This workshop is the part of our Certified Specialist of Wine program. As part of this workshop, you'll taste 6 wines related to the curriculum.
