Free Online Burgundy Wine Class Starts Soon

Clos St-Louis in Burgundy

Clos St. Louis in Burgundy

This morning I came across an article in Decanter by Jane Anson, “University of Burgundy launches free online wine course.” This particular course offered by the University of Burgundy will be available in French and English.

The wine class will be offered through the European MOOC (Massive Open Online Course.) According to the article the class will include: viticulture, terroir, tasting and more.

Wine education involves a lot more than just drinking wine. Unfortunately for too many people, the cost of “official” wine courses and degrees are just too expensive. Taking free online classes is a potential opportunity for people to learn about wine.

For anyone interested in classes that require wine tasting, that can be an additional expense but do-able. One does not need to purchase a bottle of wine to taste it. Other options available for tasting wines includes the use of wine preservation machines found in wine shops and restaurants.

The European MOOC concept reminds me of a traditional library where information/books are available for the general population. For anyone with access to a computer online is a sign of the times.

By the way,  I just signed up to take the class. Will you join the Burgundy wine course? Information is available at


Cheers! Kathy
