Languid Languedoc

Wine study at it's most relaxing may be found at Matthew Stubbs' school Vinécole,on the property of Domaine Gayda in Southern France.  To be surrounded by beautiful vineyards, steady breezes and plenty of wine tasting and fine dining must be one of the most profoundly pampering experiences in life.  Stubbs, a Master of Wine, instructs with a soothing low-key demeanor.  His dry English humor occasionally interjects itself, gracefully avoiding the faux-gravitas that comes with so much wine education. 
If a trip to the south of France is not in your budget right now, be sure to take a peek at Matthew's website for upcoming seminars stateside. 
(The gorgeous pool is for students staying on the property.)
