Learning Online with The Great Courses Plus

The Everyday Guide to Wines of California



The last time I shared my experience learning online with The Great Courses Plus, I had just signed up and dove into the online influencer videos. Not only did I learn some new nuggets that have been useful for what I do, but I have begun to love the library of courses unlimited streaming online that they offer.

Learning Online With The Great Courses Plus 

The Great Courses Plus is a subscription video on demand service that features unlimited access to nearly 8,000 videos from The Great Courses Plus. Featuring brilliant, award-winning professors from the Ivy League and experts from National Geographic, the Smithsonian, and The Mayo Clinic and National Geographic to name a few, TheGreatCoursesPlus.com service is one you do not want to miss out on!

With so many choices from science, math, history, literature to cooking, playing games, photography, and even wine. YES, wine! So that was what I decided to check out this time around.

The Everyday Guide to Wines of California

I know a lot about drinking wine. I also have been to Napa a few times, but after watching a few of The Everyday Guide to Wines of California videos now and I am learning so much that I didn’t know. Like in all The Great Courses Plus videos, the person teaching the lessons is more than qualified. One of only a few hundred people in the world, and one of 31 in the US, Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan is a Master of Wine. That is the highest level title in the industry. The first video is pretty basic, but as the lessons go on from there about the different varietals.

What makes California unique among other wine-making regions of the world? How does a French Chardonnay compare with its California counterpart? What’s the best way to read a California wine label? What are some general guidelines for opening a wine bottle and tasting in a winery? Find out the answers to these and other questions in this lecture that prepares you for the rest of your journey through the world of California wines.

With The Great Courses Plus, you can learn at your own pace about pretty much anything you want, when and where you want. I like that there is no homework, and there are new video lessons added each month. You can also take advantage of the courses via TV, Tablet, Laptop, or Phone through any web browser or just use the available App.
