I'm interested in learning more about wine, and as someone who tends not to retain much of what I read or hear, I think that some sort of structured learning environment would be better suited to me. So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to good beginner wine courses, schools, etc. I'd like to get a good, broad knowledge of the wine industry (production, distribution, etc) as well as an appreciation for the many different wines that exist, and some training for my nose/palate. I'm on the east coast, Washington DC, and I have subscribed to the Washington Wine Academy's newsletter, but I'd love to hear from anyone that might have any other suggestions. An introductory weekend course somewhere in the US would be a consideration. I appreciate any advice! Thanks.
