Introduction To Wine, The University Wine Course

I'm currently teaching a wine/lab classes on wine at CSUC (Chico, CA). The classes will be offered through the Agriculture Dept. at Plumas Hall (via the Plant and Soil Sciences).The class emphasizes sensory evaluation exercises but literally covers all aspects of wine appreciation. It covers everything from basic organoleptic exercises, 'How To Taste Wine,' 'How wine is Made,' weekly, blind tasting exercises . Introduction To Wine introduces all types and styles of wines to the students. White wines, Red wines, Rose, Sparkling and Dessert wines are all covered during this 15 week course.

This popular award-winning class is a hybrid of live classroom sessions for wine tasting supported by Web Course Tools (WebCT-Vista) to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of out tasting time.

The instructors are Dr. Richard Rosecrance and myself - Donal Smith. I'll be using the text "The University Wine Course" (A Wine Appreciation Text & Self Tutorial) by Marian W. Baldy, PHD - also used at UC Davis. This is a 3 unit, full semester, academic commitment for enrolled students.
