Description: Wine has been a cultural and culinary cornerstone for over 5,000 years across many different cultures. Since 2013, the U.S. has been the number one global consumer of wine. However, wine lovers have existed for much longer. In fact, the first recorded wine was from 7,000 years ago in China. Not only is the history of wine extensive, but it also continues to be a predominant facet of the modern day, featuring on dinner tables around the world. How does understanding the long history of wine change the experience of appreciating wine? Through classroom wine tastings, students will learn how to properly serve a glass of wine, begin developing their taste palette, and expand their terminology for proper wine descriptions. Students will explore the geography of wine regions and their regional differences, as well as how wine arrived and developed across the world. Not only will we learn about the process of winemaking, but also its technical history and contemporary agricultural and environmental problems. Students must be 21+.
