Wine Tip of the Week - Wannabe Wino? Take a Class (or Two)

Have you been to a few wine tastings or perhaps visited Napa or Sonoma and enjoyed hearing about the grape growing or winemaking process? Wish you knew a bit more? Some additional wine knowledge can help make you a better wine consumer and a better wino.  

Your local wine shop may offer some advanced classes, or you can look into organizations such as the International Sommelier's Guild, International Wine Guild, Society of Wine Educators, or the Court of Master Sommeliers.  Most of these organizations offer a range of classes in addition to full-fledged certification courses.  

The Local Wine Events website is another good resource to find education opportunities in your area. You can find classes about different wine regions, about how wine is made, about food and wine pairing - there is a lot of great information out there for waiting for you!
