Jancis Robinson, the velvet tongued wine expert who has been entertaining and informing us for many years has recently released her new shortcut to success wine course. The course is made up of many short videos that cover all aspects of wine and will be sure to educate and entertain at the same time. For only £45.00 you get life time access to all the videos.
This course would suit everyone interested in learning about wine. It is aimed at beginners of all backgrounds, and no previous knowledge is required. It is equally suitable for professionals seeking wine knowledge for their business life and individuals looking to learn about wine for their social life.
I highly recommend Jancis Robinson’s shortcut to success wine course as it helped to remind me of some aspects I had forgotten after a lifetime with wine. The video of how we actually taste wine revealed some aspects and terminology that I knew about but couldn’t necessarily describe.
The course covers all aspects of wine from how to buy wines in a restaurant right through to correctly identifying corked wines. You will learn heaps and will be able to go through the course at your leisure. Jancis is a very easy going presenter and it’s a bit like having a great teacher from school by your side gently building your wine knowledge.
Udemy is one of the greatest learn at home websites and the addition of this short course is of great importance to wine drinkers and would be wine experts and students.
Jancis is one of the most respected wine experts in the world and has written for many publications and TV program appearances. The Jancis Robinson shortcut to success wine course is her best material to date in my opinion.
Jancis has been writing about wine since 1975 when she became assistant editor for the trade magazine Wine & Spirit. In 1984 she became the first person outside the wine trade to become a Master of Wine. She also served as British Airways’ wine consultant, and supervised the BA Concorde cellar luxury selection, from 1995 until she resigned in 2010.
As a wine writer, she has become one of the world’s leading authors of educational and encyclopaedic material on wine. The Oxford Companion to Wine, edited by Robinson and now in its 4th edition, is widely considered to be the most comprehensive wine encyclopaedia in the world. The World Atlas of Wine by Hugh Johnson and Robinson, now in its 7th edition, is a classic of the wine world while Wine Grapes was the first-ever winner of all six major wine book awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
Robinson has also presented her own 10-episode wine course on BBC television, has an honorary doctorate from the Open University, and was made an OBE in 2003. Her further accolades include multiple James Beard, Glenfiddich and André Simon Memorial Awards, and in 1999 was made Person of the Year by Decanter magazine.
Once a columnist for Wine Spectator, she now writes weekly for the Financial Times and daily for her own award-winning website. She also provides advice for the wine cellar of Queen Elizabeth II.
