 Are you a wine enthusiast who looks upon the wine world with a deep curiosity? Or are you a restaurant professional wanting to take the first steps to become a sommelier? If so, this is the class for you. During this 12-week course, Kara Joseph, a Napa and NYC Certified Sommelier, will provide you valuable information on what a “Somm” is and how you can break into the mysterious world of wine. Classes will cover everything from starting the process of becoming a Certified Sommelier, understanding every major wine-producing region, blind tasting wine, and gracefully serving wine. Although you won’t receive the direct certification through this course, your instructor will assist you in understanding the organization called The Court of Master Sommeliers, the governing body responsible for the formal testing and certification of Sommeliers. After this course, you will be fully prepared to take and pass your Introductory Sommelier Certification and be equipped to sit for the Certified Sommelier Exam.
