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.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

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).

Fundamentals of Wine

Like any great field of study, wine appreciation is a life-long endeavor. It can start out intimidating and mysterious, but with structured guidance, a fascinating world of smell, taste and flavor – can awaken. In this intensive 3-day program, learn to taste and describe wine as we travel through commercially important wine regions of the world.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

We begin with the historical context of the great regions of Europe and taste benchmark examples of the classic styles – from sparkling to still, to fortified. We’ll make sense of how these wines came to be and their current relevance in the global wine market.

Not to be outdone, the regions we refer to as the New World, the Americas, the Antipodes and South Africa, have an equally compelling story to tell. We’ll taste the New Classics and draw comparisons to, and discern differences from, their Old World predecessors. In a global market, it’s the planet’s vineyards competing for market share! With our 3-day intensive training, you’ll begin to think differently about the business of wine and – to your great pleasure – eat and drink more deeply with your new life skills.
