Wines of France at Google

No country is more widely recognized for its contributions to wine, or for a culture so intrinsically tied to the sublime juice.


Over 9 Tuesday evening classes, you will learn in detail about 11 major French winemaking regions and their unique sub-regions. From winemaking laws, styles, producers, history and geography, our Master Sommelier instructors give you an in-depth education on what many consider the most revered wine-producing country in the world.

Taste 8 wines during each class–72 wines over the entire course–valued at approximately $2,500. Sip your way across the countryside with bubbly, palate-cleansing Champagne, to the gravelly left-bank of Bordeaux, to lesser-known, but equally delicious wines from the rustic Southwest.

Created to deliver the equivalent education of the Wines of France unit in our Intensive Sommelier Training program, Wines of France at Google brings ICC’s Total Immersion wine education to you for a fraction of the price (approx. $700 in savings).
