The article features food service distributor Nicholas & Co. in Salt Lake City, Utah, which has added wine service training to its curriculum. According to Wendy Caron, the company's head of value-added services program, she added the wine service training upon realizing that training in wine service was something people struggle with. A series of classes have been developed by Caron that cover basic topics such as how to open the bottle and what appropriate glassware to use aside from the training on grape varieties and wine styles offered.
