Welcome to the World of Wines!

Watch the introduction to the World of Wines course and learn from our wine experts how to become a professional wine taster
Tasting wine is an essential part of the lifestyle in some cultures. For others, it’s quite an intimidating moment when a sommelier of the restaurant is expecting you to make your wine choice in a matter of seconds. Being able to put wine into the right words can boost your confidence during business networking or pretty much any social gathering. As well as create an exclusive experience around wines for the party you’re hosting. He is Eric Pradica, your lecturer and cosmopolitan restaurant manager with strong competence in adequate serving and storing wines. She is Anastasia Borikovsky, your lecturer and international wine sales executive with extensive expertise in tasting and sourcing wines.
We are excited to welcome you to the course on how to become a professional wine taster.

In this introductory video, both of our wine experts at Cesar Ritz Colleges, Erik Pravica, and Anastasiia Burakovskikh will guide you through this course’s learning outcomes. They are both knowledgeable and passionate about wine tasting, and after this course, you will become a wine lover and connoisseur too!
