In the rat-race that consumes our nation, often times its hard to find a balance between business and pleasure (trust me, I've learned the hard way). But for the budding oenophile, this balance is about to arrive because in 2010, Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) will introduce the first digital format class for its Intermediate Certificate wine course. This course is ideal for those who have always been interested in learning the broad fundamentals of wine, like we WinoBees, but have found ourselves unable to adjust to a pre-set schedule or sit down classroom.
Available through the International Wine Center (IWC) in New York City, the WSET certificate allows students the ease, week-by-week, to review lessons and materials and ultimatley the options to earn the internationally recognized WSET Intermediate Certificate.
For more information, go to http://www.internationalwinecenter.com/. The fee for the course (including course materials, exam, tax and registration fee) is $428. Courses are scheduled for Feb. 5, March 11, April 9, May 13, and June 4.
