Fall 2015 Dates Announced for Exploring the Business of Wine Course

Students gathering outside to learn about the business of wine

Students from the Northern Virginia area look forward to attending the course Exploring the Business of Wine to learn more about “all things wine.” The course was developed by instructor Jeff Spencer, a 25-year wine industry professional, and will cover topics such as the history of wine, grape varietals and major wine regions of the world and within the United States. Topics will also include recognized industry credentials, wine pricing, employment opportunities, and future directions of the wine business. Anticipated guest speakers for the course include author Richard Leahy and Master of Wine Jay Youmans.

Included with the course are two field trips to The Winery at Bull Run in Centreville, owned by George Mason graduate Jon Hickox. Students recently heard Mr. Hickox speak about his experience and passion for building and growing his winery. Dean Greunburg, Manager, also spoke to the class about growing grapes and vineyard management, literally in the vineyard!

Dates for the upcoming Exploring the Business of Wine course are September 21 through November 2 (no class October 12). For more information or to register, please visit
