- you can check your progress with a visit to the wine cellar to see how many bottles (points) you've amassed.
- you don't have to take it all in one shot. As a registered user, you can sign in when you want and pick up where you left off.
- The colour diagrams (as example of the tongue and the taste defined areas), are medical text accurate.
- I like the idea of a wine tasting course in my home. Takes the issue of transportation and safety right out of the picture.
There's actually two courses. One is called the Instant and the other is the Complete. It's up to you decide what suits you best.
From the perspective of someone who tastes and works with wine everyday, I think the Taste of the Vine Complete Wine Course is a winner. Many of the details are part of my daily routine but there were points where I learned something new on practically every second page.
Soon I'll be referencing parts of my tongue with the appropriate latin terms. If nothing else, my geek stock will soar.
