Course Descriptions for Wine/Beer Tasting Classes

Posted on May 21st, 2008 by Fran Myers, OLLI National Resource Center

RuthAnn McCarthy Sirbaugh of Oklahoma State University asks:

After the OLLI Conference, I realized we have some serious wine-lovers in our midst. Is anyone willing to share their course descriptions for a wine-tasting or wine-pairing class? Has anyone offered a class on Microbrewery?

OLLI @ Oklahoma State University is developing a ‘Cultivation of Taste’ series and we would like to offer classes on wine-pairing or wine-tasting, microbreweries, and coffee. We advertised a ‘Chocolate Connoisseur’ class to be offered this summer and we immediately filled all three classes and have a waiting list. We also have one Chocolate Class set aside for Vice-President’s, Deans, etc. to serve as an introduction to our program.
