Man it feels good to be back on the blogging and Yelp grind. I am so glad the semester is over because it's been lots of hard work, rough, and stressful. I'd like to share with you my experience in my Wine & Beverage class.
First I'd like to say there's definitely a lot more to wine than what you see, smell, taste, and hear. Wine and Beverage was no joke! There was a lot to learn especially in fifteen weeks and a lot to remember and it was a lot for me to handle. I mean there's different countries, regions, grape varieties, bottling, fermentation methods, and a lot more.
The class is 2.5 hours and we spend 1/2 of the class lecturing and 1/4 of the class tasting and analyzing the wine/beverage. The other 1/2 of the class is spent setting up for class and cleaning up.
Here is a glimpse of some of the wines we've tried:
|French Red Wine|
|Wines from Southern Hemisphere, Austrailia, New Zealand & South Africa|
|Beer & Sake|
Although this wasn't my best class nor did I know too much about wine and beer when I first started, I feel I do know a sufficient amount of information now. I feel a little more experienced in looking for wine to purchase at retail stores and I am so happy that I was taught on how to analyze wine, how to smell and taste wine.
I've never been a fan of wine before either, but I am definitely going to seek out opportunities for wine tasting this summer and improve my wine knowledge.
