Diary of a Sommelier Student-Back to School !!


 Class is back in session!

The 2nd level of my three part journey to becoming a sommelier will begin next Tuesday, the 11th of January. Several months have passed since I completed the 1st level. A three month course that introduced me to the wine world. A course that was quite intensive, and at times, a real struggle to understand my Italian textbooks, all the technical vocabulary, etc, etc. A 15 week class that taught us about topics such as life in the vineyard, the winemaking process, the 3 steps to perform a technical wine tasting, desert wines, beers, and spirits. The 2nd level will focus on the wine regions in Italy and throughout the rest of the world. Each week we will fine tune our wine tasting skills (visual, olfactory, taste) as we get a taste of the world from our seats at the Hotel Ramada.

See you in the front row!
