Wine seminars have been the most valuable tool in understanding wine. Over the years in the restaurant industry, I have had the opportunity to participate in many wine seminars. Some wine seminars were given by the wine distributors, others by wineries and some from educational organizations. This is a perk of the industry and it is an effective way for these organizations to showcase their products.
My intention in creating these seminars was originally to educate the restaurant staff. I then realized that there are many people out there interested in wine, but do not have the opportunity to be around it at this capacity. So I started, Prime Cru Wine Club. Prime Cru was created with the intention of bringing these seminars to our restaurant guests. It was a way to offer something that they might not otherwise ever get to experience. Each seminar is given in a classroom style setting with an extensive tasting. The guests participate by listening to the seminar and tasting and asking questions.
Much of the information has been sourced from different sources on the internet and compiled so that it is easy to follow and understand. I want to make these seminars accessible so that we can all share the information. I strongly believe, a more educated populous will create more adventurous drinkers. The wine industry is always growing and we should have a well informed consumer in order to keep it sustainable.
