Wine Regions of the World

(Participants must be 21 years of age and be prepared to show ID.)

Join us for wine appreciation classes that include the discussion of styles, appellations, climates, food pairings, better producers and much more! Instructed by wine educator and enthusiast Bruce Smith, these classes are extremely popular and fill fast so please register promptly.

Bruce Smith has held an interest in wine for over thirty-five years. He is a member of the American Wine Society and Society of Wine Educators from whom he earned the Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) credential. Bruce also earned the intermediate and advanced certificates from the Wine Spirit Education Trust program and we are excited to say that he has instructed The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer's Wine Regions courses since 2005.
