LITTLE ROCK, AR – For the first time in Arkansas, students are learning how to be sommeliers.
At Pulaski Tech, more than 50 students signed up for an extensive two-day course to become wine experts. A sommelier is a trained wine professional.
Most of the students were from Arkansas, but some were from the region and even the world.
Pulaski Tech says hosting this class helps the local food and restaurant industry.
“It provides a lot of exposure to our school which we love. We love to show off this beautiful building and our facilities, but it also exposes the local restaurants here to people from all over the country,” said Pulaski Tech Lead Instructor Ken Lipsmeyer.
Pulaski Tech hopes to offer another course next year.
