Designed for wine aficionados looking to take their wine knowledge and tasting skills to the next level, Wineology, blends the immersive wine education of our Intensive Sommelier Training program, without the ‘intensity’ of training as a Certified Sommelier. With lessons, tastings, and instruction developed from our career program and taught by Master Sommeliers, ICC offers the most in-depth wine training available to the amateur, but passionate wine lover.

Module 4: Wines of France 
This comprehensive 11-day evening course, takes you through the vast and celebrated wine making regions of France, famous for making wine as fine as it is today. With an understanding of their appellation system – a codification of knowledge generated through a millennium – you’ll tour the wine regions of France, both big and small while tasting 80+ wines. We’ll present the challenges that face each region from a variety of perspectives and lift the veil to observe the controversies and differences of opinion amongst the vignerons themselves.

*Each module begins with a class that covers basic viniculture, viticulture and deductive tasting.  If an enrollee has already taken this class, they can be reimbursed for the tools and Wine Atlas distributed on this day.
