Course Description
What is wine? We know it is a beverage, but it is also much more: it is the product of thousands of years of culture, and it is a way of life, especially in Italy. This is what students will learn about in this class, which includes learning wine’s intriguing and paradoxical history, how it is made, its etiquette, how to taste it, how to pair it with food, and how it is an intrinsic part of Italian—and other—cultures, here in the region of Umbria known for some of the most outstanding wines in Italy. The course includes field trips to some of Umbria’s best wineries, often family owned companies, where students can cultivate their wine-tasting skills and learn to celebrate another culture. No knowledge of Italian is necessary.
