Wine Classes in LA/OC Area?

nomnomnoms Jan 16, 2009 02:17 PM

I'm looking for a wine course, perhaps something that will lead to a sommelier certification in the future. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Thanks much!

    Wine House on Cotner in West LA has both casual courses and occasionally does the Somellier certification courses as well. Good luck!

      In Orange county, in Orange, the Wine Exchange may be your best bet for info.

        The best wine classes are at The Wine Country in the Long Beach area - here is their schedule:

          UC-Irvine Extension has an extensive wine studies program. I just took a class a few weekends ago on wine from Burgundy and it was excellent.

              It's a trek, but the Laguna Culinary Arts school offers the Intermediate and Advanced WSET courses with MS Peter Neptune. Prefer him to the teacher at Wine House, actually, where they currently offer the Intermediate but not the advanced...
