To my understanding, there are two ways to consume wine; 1) drink and 2) enjoy. This course, most appropriately falls in the category, that teaches you, how to to enjoy the wine of your interest and beyond.

Lectures by Svetlana are easy to follow. The table of contents are carefully prepared and it covers all major topics that a novice in the field of wine-tasting would like to learn. In many ways, it helps you to educate (prepare) oneself, before actually going out and participate in any kind of wine tasting.

I personally find this course very interesting and informative. Now, when I visit supermarket to buy grocery I make sure that I go to wine section and read / check label and co-relate with what I have learnt in the course. It has changed the way I look at the wine bottles. This course is highly recommended.
