Wine Courses

Does anyone know of Westside area wine shops that offer courses to learn more about wine and how to spot and pick good ones? I have heard Larchmont Wine and Cheese has a good one but its a bit far from me to be able to go when I would want to.

Anything helps, thanks!

      The Wine House in West LA has excellent courses.

        It's not a wine shop but LA School of Wine (near Century City) has a great introductory 6 weeks wine courses. I took it last year and learned a lot about wine and how to pick good wine. We tasted 16-20 different kinds of wine every week, and for $40 per class, it's fantastic value as some of the wines served are rare or expensive.
