Default Wine Appreciation Course - Ensenada

Wine Appreciation Course

Some of the best wines in Mexico are produced in Baja California. These wines have received numerous awards in international competitions, however, we seldom have the opportunity to taste wines from the several wine regions of Mexico and compare them to wines from the rest of the world. Furthermore, wines from all over the world are now more accessible than ever, thus we now have the opportunity to sample wines made from uncommon grapes and/or produced following regional cultural practices. Consequently, the objective of this course is to discuss historical, viticultural and winemaking aspects from Mexico and other wine making regions of the world. In this course, we will taste 50 different wines from Mexico, USA, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

This course is aimed for persons without any previous experience in wine tasting as well as those with ample knowledge of wine varieties and wine regions of the world. Wine tastings have been designed to obtain a better knowledge about grape varietal characteristics and from the classic wine regions of the world. The course will impart the knowledge necessary to understand wine while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere, ultimately ensuring an enjoyable occasion.

This wine tasting course is coordinated by Alejandro Cabello-Pasini. Dr. Cabello-Pasini received his doctorate degree in Coastal Oceanography from the University of New York at Stony Brook and recently finished a degree in winemaking from the University of California at Davis.
