Wine Service Techniques

GO BEYOND OPENING THE BOTTLE: Take a deep dive into the myriad facets, including the challenges, of sommelier service.    

$ 160.00



Service is much more than proficiently performing, it is an attitude. Learn the roles and conduct of the sommelier, mis en place for service shifts, responsible alcohol service and the mechanics. Standard wine service, Champagne, decanting and tray service will be demonstrated by the instructor and performed by each student. Tools, service temperatures, screw caps, wax sealed bottles and other challenging scenarios will be discussed.

This workshop may be taken as part of our Somm Essentials program or individually à la carte. Your workshop fees can be applied to the cost of the program tuition if you would like to continue on. Payment plans are available for the full series. Those who would like to attend workshops online and forgo the wine tastings can apply SKIPTHEWINE at checkout to many online workshops for 40% off. SEE ALL WEBONLY WORKSHOPS

Hybrid - Room/Zoom

We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students, so each individual can choose to participate in-person as a "Roomer" with wine in their glass or online as a "Zoomer" with a custom tasting kit.  Both Roomers and Zoomers have the same wines and are able to engage with us and each other during these live classes. Recordings are also available within 1 business day after the class.  Learn more...
