Wine courses around San Jose area?

I took a great course in the fundementals of wine from UC Berekely and want to find one around San Jose for a gift. The course was 13 weeks, one night a week. Does anyone know of a similar type of course (shorter is fine) around the San Jose area?

    UCSC Extension offers classes in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey and San Benito Counties. I was teaching principally in Cupertino and Santa Clara, with an occasional course in Santa Cruz. I don't know if they still offer them, but it's worth a look:
