San Francisco Wine School Offering Weekend Immersion Program
From April 26th to 28th, the San Francisco Wine School will host an intensive, three-day wine education program on California wines and wine regions. Designed by school founder and master sommelier David Glancy, the program is designed for both wine industry professionals and wine lovers alike.
The weekend will include a guided tasting and discussion of over 60 California wines, a thorough discussion of the history of California’s American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), and the chance to examine the grapes, soils, and climates of each region. Regions of study will include Napa Valley, Mendocino County, Sonoma County, Santa Cruz, and several others.
“This three-day program packs into a single weekend all of the training usually provided in a nine-week course,” Glancy promised.
The program will be hosted at the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. Participants who complete the program will earn the California Wine Appellation Specialist credential. More details are available through the San Francisco Wine School.
