Wine Appreciation Classes at Wichita State University with Good Life Guy

2017 – Two great classes this Fall:

Wine Appreciation Basic Intro Class – 4 consecutive Mondays (Sept 11/18/25 & Oct 2) 7:00-9:00pm

Robert Mondavi was fond of saying, “Wine has been with us since the beginning of civilization. It is the temperate, civilized, sacred and romantic mealtime beverage.”

Learn to be a part of that philosophy with this casual overview for the novice or experienced enthusiast.  Attendees will learn the basics of taste, how to recognize and describe varietal characteristics, and to identify personal likes and dislikes.  You will learn about different growing regions, viticultural practices and winemaker technique that impact production. Each class will consist of a brief introductory lecture followed by a tasting of at least six different wines.  Energetic classroom participation through discussion is encouraged.  Emphasis is on wine enjoyment without snobbery!

Instructor: Guy Bower, Level-1 Sommelier, Host of The Good Life on KNSS, Founding Chairman Wichita AIWF
Fee: $106 per person
Location: Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 29th St. at Oliver
