Lecture 1: Wine & Spirits: Responsible Service and Advanced Education
When wine sales are not reaching expected goals, many times it’s not the wine, it’s the server’s lack of knowledge about the wine. In this course, individuals will learn many things about wine such as grape varietals, region specific tasting profiles, and classic food and wine pairings. They will also learn where classic spirits are produced and the popular cocktails from around the world which are classic spirit based. Most important, the individual taking this course will gain an understanding of the safe and responsible way to serve, or not to serve, alcohol to an intoxicated or underage Guest.
