CAPS Atlantic Updates


To all students on behalf of everyone at CAPSAC we want to thank you for your patience as we navigate yet another delay in executing our classes. With the restrictions in place and vaccinations still underway we hope this postponement is our last one! 


UPDATE TO SPRING 2021 CLASSES BELOW:


Sensory Development and Wine Styles

Originally scheduled to begin on May 2nd, now postponed to September, 2021.

In light of the recent Covid-19 restrictions in Nova Scotia and the uncertainty with respect to being able to hold in-person classes in the near future, the Education Committee, in consultation with the instructors, have decided to postpone Sensory Development and Wine Styles until September of this year. This decision was made because we feel that it is essential that students who are starting the program get the best possible foundation on which to build their wine education. This is especially true for wine tasting, which is best done in a group setting so that students and instructors can interact and discuss the nuances of wine styles, regions, faults, etc. This simply cannot be done effectively by remote learning. We remain committed to ensuring that all students get the best possible experience from their wine education and look forward to doing whatever we can to help you along the way.

Methods of Winemaking:

Originally scheduled for May 11, 16 and 18; now postponed until further notice.

In light of the recent Covid-19 restrictions in Nova Scotia and the uncertainty with respect to being able to hold in-person classes and travel within the Province, the Education Committee, in consultation with the instructors, have decided to postpone Methods of Winemaking until it is practical to do so. At this time we are unable to give a tentative starting date but will do so as soon as we are able to.

Sommelier Management:

Tentatively scheduled for June 5 and 6.

At this time, we anticipate that Sommelier Management be be held as currently scheduled, but a final decision will be made based on Covid-19 regulations as we get closer to the scheduled date.
