The Little Nell Wine Academy
Sunday, April 7 - Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Back by popular demand, we’re proud to present the third consecutive year of The Little Nell Wine Academy - Sunday, April 7, to Wednesday, April 10, 2019. This comprehensive course, focused on the wines of Italy, includes wine and spirits, food pairings, and service. Carlton McCoy, Wine Director and Master Sommelier at The Little Nell, will lead the intimately-sized program, joined by a fellow Master Sommelier and members of the knowledgeable team of sommeliers at The Nell.
Classes will take place at the prestigious, members-only Aspen Mountain Club, situated at 11,212 feet, in full view of the awe-inspiring Elk Mountains. Meals, wine tastings and special events will also be staged at The Little Nell, with luxurious accommodations available for a preferred rate.
As a participant, you will develop the knowledge and confidence to discuss a comprehensive range of wines and spirits, as well as confidently recognize general wine quality and flaws. No prior wine knowledge is necessary. At the conclusion of the course, an exam will be given and a commencement ceremony will take place at our closing dinner.
The registration fee of $3,500 for The Little Nell Wine Academy covers the cost of the course, comprising two full-days and two half-days of presentations; a comprehensive workbook; exceptional wine and spirits from Italy; and all meals and Wine Academy activities. There will also be many interactive opportunities for learning and networking, as well as experiencing all that the luxurious Little Nell offers. The schedule will be provided in early 2019.
