The Texas Wine School offers Dr. Kane’s Specialist of Texas Wine course as a first-of-its-kind program. It uniquely offers a comprehensive series of classes featuring the wines and wine regions of Texas. Never before has there been a wine program with classes specifically focused solely on Texas. According to Dr. Kane, ”When I assembled the materials for this class, my goal was to teach Texas and its wines in much the same manner I experienced while learning about Bordeaux, Burgundy and Napa Valley. I focus on history, culture, climate, geology, and geography, as well as advances in viticulture and enology that have put Texas on the map of fine wine producing regions.”

Murray Culture in the American Southwest. The class also features guest presenters actively involved in Texas wineries. The information presented in these classes will provide great knowledge and working value to students in hospitality and service industries, wine distribution and sales, and tasting rooms. It will also be of great interest to knowledgeable consumers wanting an immersive Texas wine experience and detailed information on how and where to find the best Texas wines.
