'Seoul Wine School' To Open April 1An educational institute which teaches people everything about wine will soon open in Korea.
The 'Seoul Wine School,' where students can learn everything about wine and sample it at the same time, will open on April 1 in Nonhyon-dong, Kangnam county, Seoul.
In western countries, where wine is extremely popular, people have many chances to learn about the beverage. In Korea, however, wine is not hugely popular, so this special school will provide Koreans with a unique opportunity to become more familiar with wine, something they not have been able to do before.
The school will teach the history of winemaking as well as modern production techniques with the help of audiovisual aids brought from France. Students will also learn how to truly appreciate wine by undergoing specially designed training to improve their sense of smell and taste. These lessons will take the form of wine-tasting seminars.
Both Basic and Intermediate level classes will be offered. The Basic class is one month long and concentrates on providing students with a basic knowledge of wine which will teach them to properly enjoy the drink.
The Intermediate class lasts two months (72 class hours). The upper level class goes into greater depth and will focus on issues like how to control wine quality and how to launch wine-related businesses. Contact 02-514-3288 for more information.
