Wine Appreciation

A non-credit offering from the School of Hospitality Management.

The course introduces students to viniculture and viticulture and the sensory evaluation of wine. It concentrates on the sensory elements of wine that make it a global economic and culture phenomenon with emphasis on Old World and New World traditions, food pairing, and trends in the wine business. It discusses the climates, topographies, and other natural conditions that make some regions more suited to certain wine cultivation than others and how these conditions are replicated around the world. It covers the important role wine plays in the delivery of dining experiences in both hospitality enterprises as well as retail and social experiences. The wine industry is replete with specific and technical vocabulary that when mastered enables participants to engage in wine activities knowledgeably and successfully, whether as a consumer, host or professional.
