Course Description Wine Appreciation introduces the student to the significance of the world of wine in the dining experience. The class will include a study of the winemaking process, major wine grape varieties, wine regions of the world, and in-class evaluation of wine. Course Format This course is designed around lecture, in-class discussion, and independent reading. All necessary information and assignments will be discussed in class. The instructor will post power point slides and relevant course related materials on Canvas to aid in the comprehension of topics discussed in class. All materials posted on Canvas are to be considered supplemental and will not act as a replacement for attending class. Classroom Protocol It is expected that each student attend every class session. It is also understood that “life happens” so if a student is not able to make a session, it is the students responsibility to communicate with a fellow class member to turn in any assignments for you on time, and to get pertinent information provided in class. Assignments will not be accepted on-line or through email . Additionally any written assignments may be turned in to the instructor’s mailbox in the main office prior to the beginning of scheduled class time. Glasses - each student will be responsible for bringing their own wine glasses to class. You are required to bring a minimum of 4 wine glasses to each class (with the exception of specifically excluded sessions). See “Other Equipment/Material Requirements” for specification of acceptable glasses. All glasses must be clean, and polished before each session begins. Tasting - The tasting portion of the class is meant to be a serious and educational experience, but also interesting enough to help you understand the role that wine can play in your business and personal lives. Tastings will be conducted in most class sessions. Each student will be provided a spit cup at each class. You are required to use them. This is a tasting class, not a drinking class. If you are thinking you are going to drink lots of alcohol, please do not enroll. You will consume a small amount of alcohol during evaluation and during food and wine pairings.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
