I wish I had a class like this when I was starting my career in the wine industry. Back then there were no classes available to learn the basics of wine. It took me years just to figure out how to approach this vast and complicated subject. That is why I created this class and why I believe it is so important to anyone trying to understand wine. I will break out the different areas of study and give an overview of each along with advice about how to begin your studies.
We require a minimum 48 hour notice prior to the start of the class to cancel your reservation. If a cancellation is made after
48 hours, we'll charge your card for the full amount of the class. Thank you for your understanding.
Seattle Wine School was founded by Richard Kinssies, owner of Wine Outlet and Greenlake Wines & Tasting Room. Every Monday Richard offers a wide variety of classes and seminars on wine and wine related topics to both consumers and wine and food professionals. In addition to these classes, Kinssies has provided training to restaurants and members of the wholesale and retail wine trade and has been retained by the French government to instruct the wine trade on the wines of France.
