Jancis Robinson launches online wine course – and a half price offer
A recent Wine Market Council survey has shown that for the first time there are more Millennials drinking wine than any other generation. But do Millennials know their Merlot from their Malbec, or their Chardonnay from their Chablis?
For 40 years, Jancis Robinson has been the go-to wine guru for millions via her column in the Financial Times, her many TV series, her award winning website and classic reference books. Now for the first time she’s taken her years of experience and put them into an online course: “I’ve written many books on wine, but I thought a complete wine course that can be easily accessed on smartphones and tablets was long overdue.”
So Jancis teamed up with online learning agency Electric Academy to develop a wine course which can give even complete beginners an understanding of wine in a single evening. She covers a range of subjects from how wine is made and how to taste wine, all the way to finding great-value wines and which wines to match with which foods.
All this can be done in the comfort of your own home, preferably with a glass in hand. And should you not find it useful, there’s even a 30-day money-back guarantee.
As Jancis says, “The main point of wine is to give pleasure, not to generate social confusion and angst. I’d like to make the enjoyment of wine more accessible and remove some of the myth and pretense around it. There are some fantastic wines out there and I’d like to help people find and enjoy them.”
