As I’ve referenced before, I took a class called “Wines of the World” my senior year with Professor John Boyer. First of all, I wish everyone in the world could take a class with this guy… he is a genius, and uses his endearingly abrasive personality, a large stage (for a very large class audience!), an out-of-the-box grading approach, and social media to reach his students effectively. I learned so much in his class on wine, as well as in another class I took from him about current events around the world.
For anyone who is looking to go deeper in their wine knowledge, or for anyone who just wants a good reference book for their coffee table, I want to recommend one of the wine books he assigned as a textbook for the class. Kevin Zraly’s Complete Wine Course has just been fantastic!
