The WC’s El Centro wine class is back

El Centro wine classIf you’ve got a couple of hours on Thursday night, consider the El Centro wine class

The Wine Curmudgeon will return to El Centro College in Dallas next semester, teaching the original wine class – RSTO 1319, viticulture and enology, for those who want to register. If you aren’t a student at El Centro, you can take it as continuing education through this link.

That means 16 classes covering the wines of the world, the three-tier system and the wine supply chain (which is a lot more fun than it sounds), wine production and grape growing, which includes my infamous vineyard and sunlight blackboard sketches, and more than a dozen tastings. I also bring in a variety of guest speakers, featuring some of the smartest wine people in Dallas. There may also be a rant or two about wine scores – delivered with the proper academic perspective, of course.

All is delivered with my unique brand of enthusiasm, map drawing skills, humor, and passion for wine. How much more fun can one have on a couple of hours on a Thursday night?

I missed teaching this semester, and I’m excited to be doing it again, The semester begins Jan. 19 and ends May 11. It always amazes me, no matter how many times I’ve done it, to see people nod their head in agreement when something makes sense, and to know I’ve struck a blow against the foolishness of the wine business.
