There are no written or driving tests - classroom only. NY residents: please contact your insurance carrier to confirm they will accept a Connecticut State class certificate. Registration required.

On May 24, 1976 the world of wine was rocked when several mostly unknown California wines beat out several of the top French wines in a blind tasting by French judges on their own turf. In Judgment of Paris, George Taber, the only journalist present, recounts the birth of modern winemaking in California leading up to this unintentionally historic event. Focusing on the trials and tribulations of the three men who made the 1st place wines - a university classics lecturer, a real estate attorney, an immigrant from Croatia - Taber introduces the cast of characters who put California wine on the world's shopping list. Following the climactic tasting, he then surveys the global impact of the shockwaves that followed it. Wine Spectator called it "both a 'rags to riches' and 'David beats Goliath' tale….stories [that] help keep the American Dream alive."
