NAPA, Calif. (PRWEB) September 14, 2020
London-based Academie du Vin Library and Napa Valley Wine Academy join forces to offer a series of webinar presentations featuring star-studded wine luminaries such as Hugh Johnson and Steven Spurrier, along with a selection of wine book classics and new titles offered by an array of renown wine authors. A number of the presentations will also include an optional wine kit, allowing viewers to taste along with some of the industry’s most venerable experts.
Academie du Vin Library founder, Steven Spurrier, created the Library collection to bring the very best wine writing of the past, present and future under one imprint, offering undisputed wine classics like The Story of Wine (Hugh Johnson), In Vino Veritas (writers such as Charles Walter Berry), and Wine Tasting (Michael Broadbent), as well as new titles that are sure to be the classics of the future. The Napa Valley Wine Academy, two-time winner of the WSET’s Global Educator-of-the-Year award, has been at the forefront of online wine education and virtual learning, offering a successful selection of regionally-focused webinars and certification courses such as WSET Levels 1 through 4. The Napa Valley Wine Academy was an early pioneer of wine kit shipments to students, making it an industry leader in the online and virtual educational field.
Each live webinar presentation is offered free-of-charge, and the purchase of the accompanying book title, and wine kit when offered, are optional.

The premier webinar presentation, scheduled for September 26th, features an interview with celebrated wine writer, Hugh Johnson, on the topic of the history of wine. A new edition of Mr. Johnson’s award-winning The Story of Wine, released by the publisher this week, will be offered for sale through the Napa Valley Wine Academy site when registering for the webinar.
