While California is one of many world-class wine regions, there’s are compelling reasons why knowledge-thirsty wine enthusiasts should immerse themselves into the most comprehensive educational program ever developed around California wine. When you consider the fact that more than 90% of the domestically produced wines come from the Golden State and that the vast majority of all wines consumed in America are Californian, once you’ve mastered California wines, the rest of the world will be a snap by comparison.
From its peerless quality to its mind-boggling diversity, California Wine is a standout on the world stage. And while it might seem like a lot to take in, an all-star team of wine experts has developed Capstone California; a fast track wine education program divided into 4 courses that will help you become an expert in no time. Start with the basics and then take your California wine knowledge as far as you want to go. You’ll not only be one heck of a conversation starter, you’ll also be a leading candidate for wine and culinary dream jobs.
Joining David on this week’s edition is Honore Comfort, the VP of International Marketing for the esteemed Wine Institute. As you’ll soon hear, Honore has endless stories to share about the remarkable journey winemaking in California has taken; from the missionaries to center stage as an incomparable winemaking powerhouse! You’ll learn about the pioneers who were drawn to the fertile soils and microclimates throughout the state and how their humble family businesses became household names as generation after generation passed the baton.
To ensure that you’re not intimated by what is promised to be very user-friendly curriculum, David has enrolled himself in the Capstone California Program and will report back to listeners on a regular basis. It’s called “walking the walk” and not just talking the talk. It might be all the encouragement you need to take your wine knowledge to a mighty high level!
