American Wine Society Education Courses

November 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Hyatt Regency | $250

During the American Wine Society Conference 2023, there will be two wine education courses held on Nov. 9 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

WineSmarts I is an entertaining and interactive way to explore the basics of wine. Learn how it’s made, how to taste it and how to evaluate it with the Aroma Wheel using principal wine varieties. Featuring 18 wines, the course includes background information on where the grapes are grown, flavor profiles, region highlights from old and new world counterparts and the basics of food and wine pairing.

WineSmarts II is designed as a continuation of the series, diving deeper into various winemaking processes while exploring how climate and terroir affect growing regions and their resulting wines. Acquire a more in-depth ability to evaluate the 19 wines covered in the course through bling tastings and fun, interactive learning challenges. Gain the knowledge and skills to make smarter, more confident wine purchases, and take food and wine pairing to the next level by evaluating, comparing and contrasting flavors. WineSmarts I is not a prerequisite for this class; it’s open to anyone who wants to advance their wine knowledge.

The deadline to register for the courses is Oct. 10.
