Wine Camp Anyone?

by Maria

I have always wanted to go to wine camp. It isn't really camping, which is fine with me. I am not exactly the outdoorsy type so I am glad I don't have to sleep in a tent, or waste hours looking for a corkscrew. But spending a few days semi-working in a vineyard, under a great big blue sky, and then going into the cellar and learning all about winemaking, and tasting all that gorgeous wine, that sounds charming.

It is a fantasy that most of us wine loving city dwellers can get behind, particularly if we don't have to break much of a sweat.

Then a few years ago I read a hilarious article by Joel Stein. He is a wonderful writer for Time Magazine. His specialty is writing about everyday events, such as naming your child or attending a gold selling party.

This particular article is about his adventures at wine camp. I think it makes me want to go even more.

Cornell is offering a wine camp this summer. It's pricy but includes instruction from the faculty and visits to Finger Lakes wineries.
