“Understanding Wine,” begins on March 25. Union Square Hospitality Group’s James Beard Award-winning wine director John Ragan will teach the class in partnership with the Institute for Culinary Education. Mr. Ragan is one of just three people in the world who holds a master sommelier title, according to Union Square Hospitality Group. The course will also feature guest speakers, including winemakers, grape growers and other oenophiles at the company.”

    The $1,750 fee may seem steep, but if your looking to open a winery or invest in wine, that’s cheap for the kind of profit you’ll receive from this course. There aren’t many oenophile schools/courses that I know of at any mainstream colleges, and the ones that do exist are this expensive or more.
