Center for Wine Studies

The ICE Center for Wine Studies in NYC is designed to build your understanding, awareness and appreciation for the whole spectrum of wine, as well as other beverages such as beer, spirits and sake. The program includes a mix of one-session, two-session and six-session classes. The most in-depth wine tasting class is the Wine Essentials class, which meets once a week for six weeks, with each session dedicated to a particular topic, such as Bordeaux or sparkling and dessert wines. 

The Mixology Center

When designing ICE’s New York City campus in Brookfield Place, we were committed to bringing both the business of running a bar and craft bar management to life for our career, professional and recreational students. Featuring a best-in-breed, mixologist-designed bar, our Mixology Center provides students with the ability to literally step into the shoes of the industry’s best bartenders.
