The Autonomous University of the State of Mexico’s (UAEM) Tenancingo campus will offer an oenology course every Thursday from June 30 to Dec. 15, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. This class will allow participants to learn about the production of wine, its main ingredients, characteristics and its fermentation process.
In an interview, academic and UAEM’s Tenancingo campus Oenology and Sensory Analysis Laboratory Coordinator Sergio Sotomayor Deformes said that the course is designed for teachers, students, hotel managers, restaurant owners and the general public.
Sotomayor Deformes said that the course is different from other courses offered by wineries, it will have a capacity for 25 people and will consist of a total of 120 study hours.
Students will learn to taste wines and develop a palate to recognize a wide variety of flavors and aromas. They will also gain knowledge about wine’s commercialization, how to pair it with different food, and how to recognize, select and recommend a good wine.
Sotomayor Deformes is an advisor to several Mexican vineyards and a prouder of craft beer. He said that courses such as this do not currently exist, as it allows people with no previous knowledge of wines to enroll.
