Did you take the SDEN 2 wine course? Or do you have reasonable knowledge about how wine is made and how you taste and judge wine? Then you are ready for the SDEN 3 wine course. For eight evenings we go deeper into wine where both theory and practice are extensively discussed. Never boring, lots of juicy details, valuable information and always supported by pure, typical wines from renowned houses. Many wines are reviewed, where we carefully look for a nice mix of styles. You taste 10+ wines in one evening. After the course you have thorough knowledge about the wine regions worldwide, which wines are produced, the characteristics of a variety of grape varieties, how wines are made and what laws and rules apply. You can also taste, recognize and assess wines. At the end of the course you can participate in the nationally recognized exam.
