Wine School - Basic Level

The Basic Course is intended for all wine lovers who want to learn the basic rules of wine tasting and wine evaluation, wine and food matching, reading wine labels, wine service as well as the basics of viticulture and winemaking.

This course includes learning about proper wine tasting and wine service as well as evaluating wine quality, reading wine labels, matching wine and food and the basics of winemaking and viticulture.

The training is designed so that besides the theoretical part, students are practically trained in how to consume and evaluate the quality of wine, which involves tasting over 15 wines of different styles. With this kind of approach to education, students will learn how to recognize the positive and negative characteristics of wine, the aroma of wine as well as its style.

The course can be attended by all wine lovers without any previous knowledge about wines, but also those who want to learn more about this topic, regardless of whether they want to professionally enter the wine business (sommeliers, tour guides specialized in wine tours, wine traders …) or simply want to expand their knowledge in this field.
