Robert Louis Stephenson wrote that wine is bottled poetry and, like poetry, wine offers infinite varieties, much to explore and a lifetime of learning. And, like just about anything else, the more you learn about wine, the more you will enjoy it.
Knowing what to drink at the right times of year, for specific occasions and with what meal, will enrich your appreciation. As you develop your own tastes and preferences, your confidence and enjoyment will grow further.
Wine is also a big part of hospitality, both at a professional level and in everyday life. So, Le Cordon Bleu has been training wine merchants alongside other hospitality industry professionals for years now.
