There is still time to register for summer winemaking courses at UC Davis.
The featured courses this summer are:
Advanced Wine Tasting
This rigorous day of tasting duplicates many of the consistency and identification tests required for qualification as a wine competition judge. It challenges experienced tasters and, following each flight that is blind tasted, provides immediate feedback on their sensitivity to a range of odors and flavors in wine, whether attributes or defects.
