3-part series If you are serious about pursuing an education in wine, Mastering the Art of Wine Tasting is the most important wine class you may take. It is a thorough grounding in the skills necessary to taste wines like a professional. There are 3 parts to the class: part one teaches the basic principals of tasting wine including how the olfactory system functions, the language of wine, identifying aromas and flavors, detecting off odors and, most importantly, how to approach a glass of wine for tasting.
