This is part one of three modules of the Winologie workshop offered by the Paso Robles Wine Academy. This hands-on three hour workshop helps the attendees to explore the white and red wines of Paso Robles while learning the fundamentals of wine tasting and wine appreciation using sensory methods. The instructor will guide the attendees to identify and describe the color, smell, taste, and savor the wines and help them complete a professional wine tasting sheet.


In addition, the instructor will go over the basics of wine type, structure, and common wine aromas.


The fee includes tasting wines, learning materials, and a winery tour. 

Classes are limited to 6 per class to allow for personal one-on-one discussions and customized learning.
