Join Sommelier Gino Campbell on December 6 for the next installment of The French Gourmet Wine School. I personally had the privilege of attending the last event hosted by Gino, focusing on the wines of the Italian Piemonte region and it was not only fun, but very educational as well.

Gino’s style is very comfortable at these events, the perfect blend of humility and expertise. He doesn’t talk down to his ‘students’, but provides a lot of pithy information that truly demonstrates the love of his craft.

Currently an Encinitas resident, Campbell has a very rich pedigree, having earned honors as a Master Sommelier from the French Sommelier program at the University of Bordeaux, then receiving the title of Advanced Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers, Culinary Institute of America in Napa California.

This installment of ‘The School’ will include the history, the fizz, the districts, regions and villages, the styles, specific grapes, and unique stories. Prior attendance in other events is not necessary to attend any of these classes, but those who have attended definitely tend to come back.

Again, the event is Sunday, December 6, 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.; the cost is $25 per person.

For more information or to RSVP for the Wine School, please contact Gino Campbell at (858) 488-1725 x326.
