DiVino has been hard at work all year to bring you our very first, professionally shot and edited DiVino Wine School series, 21 Days to Wine, scheduled for release on YouTube November 14th, 2019. New episodes will air every Thursday for 21 consecutive weeks and are completely free to watch.
A Free, 21-Episode Introduction to Winetasting
The series is an introduction to the principles and terminology of multi-sensory wine analysis, or wine tasting. Each episode is a designed as an interactive masterclass, and participants are encouraged to taste wine while watching and share their questions, impressions, and stories. Episodes are 5-8 minutes in length, and cover a range of topics, comprising the visual, olfactory, and gustatory analysis of wine.
Wine Education with a Certified Sommelier
The course material draws on elements of DiVino Founder, Annie Shapero’s three-year sommelier certification classwork at AIS (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) in Rome, Italy, and her experience teaching and communicating wine for ten years in New York City.
