You can be someone who knows a lot about wine.

(Without being annoying or snobby about it πŸ˜…)

Wine can seem really overwhelming, I know!

🍷 You've been to plenty of tastings before

🍷 You've visited tons of vineyards, lucky you!

🍷 But you never seem to retain what you've learned *SPOILER ALERT: DRUNK*

I'm here to finally make it stick!

online wine course teacher

Hi, I'm Caroline!

I'm an expert wine teacher,Β currently studying for the Master of Wine, who pivoted into online wine education at the beginning of the pandemic.

I've been in this world for a long time, and I know how annoying wine snobbery can be.

And you tell me all the time how wine information goes in one ear and out the other!

That's why I'm here to share with you my foolproof Wine Confidence Method.Β 

It's how I learned about wine, and it's how you can, too!

The Wine Confidence Method

Comparative tasting is the fastest way to increase your wine knowledge, and guess what, it's also super fun!

During my undergrad at Oxford, I joined the Blind Wine Tasting Society and I tasted multiple wines side by side every week with a group.

πŸ’‘ Ding ding! πŸ’‘

I went from knowing literally nothing about wine to winning our competition in just one year.

My Signature Comparative Tasting Program in combination with my comprehensive online wine course is the key to my Wine Confidence Method.

Tasting + Wine Facts = Fastest Way to Wine Expertise

The Wine Course:

At the beginning of each week you'll get access to recorded presentations that have all the fact-y wine stuff.

This includes video slideshows and transcripts, PDF guides, super cute maps, and quizzes.Β 

This is the foundational material that will teach you the important facts about wine before we meet live to work through our tastings together.

Each module is around 10 minutes long with the exception of Module 5 - Europe, which is more like 30. Totally doable!

The Signature Tasting Program:

Then we'll meet up over the weekend to taste as a group.

The group will taste 6 wines each week, comparing them to each other to fine tune your palate.

This will be a gallery-view Zoom where you can ask me your questions real time, and I'll talk you through the tasting.

In total you'll taste 36 glasses of 18 wines. We'll re-taste the wines in different combinations for different learning aims. This is possible through the magic of Repour {keep reading}!

Because nobody likes to drink alone - I'm offering a special discount when you sign up as a pair! Now this isn't just for couples who will be sharing a screen, but for best friends who live on opposite coasts, for moms and daughters, old college roommates, cousins, brothers, you get the idea! πŸ‘―

"I went from feeling awkward and confused in a wine shop to looking forward to my visits. I can actually talk to the people working there now and have an informed conversation. I am now the go-to wine person in my social circle, even including my partner's family, and they're French!" - Milena S.

If you wanna learn about wine...

You've got to taste!

That's why I created my Signature Comparative Tasting Program!

I work with Repour Wine Saver and send you 20 wine stoppers that protect your wine for days, weeks, or even months!

These Repours are a special bonus for students and will be shipped out when you sign up.

They allow you to taste the same 18 bottles, in different combinations, for all 6 weeks of the program (and beyond)!

The Wine List

For this program you'll taste 18 wines from all around the world that represent a wide variety of regions, grapes, and styles. I chose these wines because they are global classics.

With the magic of Repour, you'll taste the same wines more than once, but compared against different wines in the lineup. You'll never waste a drop!

This will allow us to really hone in on what makes each wine special, and give you the opportunity to master your palate.

All wines on the list should be easy to find, wherever you are! They won't be specific brands, but classic wine styles. For example: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.Β 

Praise for Caroline's Wine Course

Jessica

Ann Arbor, Michigan

Caroline basically synthesizes her 14 years of experience in the wine industry into an approachable and non-stuffy format that helps people gain confidence in their wine knowledge. Her online tastings are fun and irreverent. I have a blast AND become a better taster all at the same time!"

Dino

British Columbia, Canada

What a great idea to share a virtual wine tasting with people from around the world. Caroline shared wonderful tips on how to taste and evaluate wine as well as sharing information about each of the wines! Caroline is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about wine and her enthusiasm is contagious. Well done, Caroline!

McKenna

Vancouver, Canada

Caroline is the wine BFF you always wanted - her easy-going approach to wine education immediately makes you feel like you feel like you're finally going to learn something about wine! I've tasted wine in countries around the world and even though I feel like I "know" wine pretty well, I've never had anyone who I could relate to, to properly teach me about it!

Wine Wisdom in 6 Weeks

During this program, not only will you get access to my comprehensive wine course that will give you all the important facts about the entire world of wine, but you'll also get 12 hours of tasting time with me and our group.

As you know if you've ever tasted with me, wine is about so much more than soil type or months in a barrel, it's about history, politics, science,Β  and technology.

We'll be spending 2 hours each week together to really hone your tasting skills and expand your wine knowledge.

Virtual tastings with me start at $300 for an hour, and you'll be getting 12 of them!

This is an unmissable chance to go deep with me on this fabulous subject and level up your life forever!

What to Expect

Before We Start

As soon as you sign up you'll get access to the opening module and the course resources, including the wine list.

We'll meet up on Zoom for a welcome drinks on the 26th of September, this gives you some time to scope out your local wine scene and come armed with any questions you have about the wines.

I want to make sure you're ready to dive in once the program begins!

6 Weeks to Wine Confidence

Each week you'll receive access to the course modules.Β  Most weeks you'll get more than one video, but they're always short! Except Europe, that one is around 30 minutes.

Then we'll meet up on Sunday via Zoom as a group to taste 6 wines together over the course of 2 hours.

This is your face time with me, not only to cover the wines in our glasses but to discuss that week's content as well. It's always helpful to taste as a group to expand your palate!

Awesomeness for Life

Being a wine geek is the best!

If you've read this far it's because you at least suspect that wine could be a real passion for you, something delicious and exciting that brings joy to your world.

Diving into wine is the gift that keeps on giving. It makes your travels more exciting, your gifting game top notch, and your day to day dining just a little sexier. You know it does!

pssst

Did you know that I'm currently studying to become a Master of Wine?

The MW is the hardest qualification in the whole world and is basically impossible.

My point is that I know my sh*t.

Not to toot my own very shiny horn made out of extensive studying, impressive qualifications, international experience, and an unnaturally dorky brain.

But even though I'm a top notch wine expert, I'm also a super fun weirdo! Hanging out with me is a wild ride, one that you definitely want to be on. We serve wine on this train.
