MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - If you’ve ever dreamed of sipping wine like a pro or impressing your date by knowing exactly what to order from the wine list, Northern Michigan University has a course for you.

NMU is offering an Introduction to Wine Studies course this fall and it’s open to both undergraduate students and members of the public.

Sommelier Marcella Krupski stops by Upper Michigan Today to fill you in on the course, but first, stories of the day.

Now, back to Intro to Wine.

The 16-week course runs from August 28 to December 16 and meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 - 7:40 p.m. at the newly renovated hospitality center at NMU.

Though you’ll leave the course with newfound knowledge of wine, you will not become a certified sommelier by taking this course.

Krupski says taking Introduction to Wine Studies is a great pathway to getting that certification.

Sommelier Marcella Krupski explains the intro to the wine course as UMT wraps up.
