Thank you ever so much for signing up to An approach to wine in English. You may be asking yourself why we have created this course. Well, it is quite simple. Andrew Ashurst (Wine Aspects) and David Molina (Outlook Wine) love sharing their experience and passion with wine lovers and professionals alike. They have a firm belief in developing students to think for themselves and be independent, but this does come with study and rigorous analysis, but everyone has to start somewhere.
Andrew and David want to take you back to when they started in the wine sector making mistakes in the English language. Yep, that is right, MAKING MISTAKES. In Andrew’s case, it was more about concepts, while in David’s case it was more down to the use of English. So, get ready to look at common mistakes and misuses, while learning basic ways to use English while tasting wines.
As we want you to have the best experience possible, we have made the following video in English with subtitles (click on the CC button in the bottom righthand corner of the video viewer) to show you how to navigate around Wine Aspects Academy.
