Novice oenophiles, enhance your critical tasting ability and learn basic aspects of sensory evaluation often overlooked in most wine tastings. Study the different components of wine appearance, aroma and flavor. Participate in tastings of doctored wines in blind and known tastings. Explore the origins of desirable and undesirable flavors of wine and the stylistic contributions of winemaking techniques. Lectures by faculty members of the world-renowned UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology will be interspersed throughout the program. Emphasis is placed on correct use of wine descriptive terminology.
