|Wines of the World will be offered Monday nights from Nov. 6 – Dec. 11.|
The College of the Extended University is launching a new six-week course that will provide students with an around-the-world look and taste of wine and winemaking history. The class is open to members of the campus and surrounding communities.
The course, titled Wines of the World, will be held Mondays, Nov. 6 – Dec. 11, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. In this class, novices and certified wine lovers alike will gain a better understanding of grape varietals from France, Italy, Germany, Spain, South America and the United States. Taught by Brendan Lawson, vintner from Galleano Winery in Mira Loma, the class will focus on the grapes, the soil, the climate and a short history of each region and its viticulture practices.
Registration is currently underway for this course. Price of the course is $225 per person.
Each quarter the College of the Extended University also offers a two-hour Introduction to Wine Tasting course. This beginning class is perfect for anyone who wants to acquire a greater knowledge of wine and would like to develop personal skills for tasting and describing wine, selecting wines in restaurants and wine shops, and storing and serving wine. Introduction to Wine Tasting is currently scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 16 and Thursday, Dec. 14. Each two-hour class is $45 per person.
All wine tasting classes are held at Kellogg House Pomona.
In addition to the wine tasting courses the College of the Extended University offers a variety of classes and certificate programs including Wedding Consultant, Event Planning, Fundraising and Grant Writing, Human Resource Management, Computer Training and much more.
