The Tampa Wine Institute, Florida’s Only Wine School.

The French may not have invented wine, but they certainly perfected it. No other wine producing country in the world can boast the diversity and high quality of wines like the French. Because the wines that come from Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Alsace, The Loire Valley, The Rhone Valley and the South of France, arguably produce the best manifestations of the Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc Etc. anywhere in the world. One cannot call oneself an Oenophile unless one has explored the The Wines of France. West Palm Wines Jim Sirna, devote Francophile, will conduct a unique series of classes devoted entirely to The Wines of France. So don’t miss this opportunity to travel to the vineyards of France with The Tampa Wine Institute.
