Fundamentals of Wine: France!
An educational wine & food experience
Enjoy a tour of France through its famous wine regions- Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Loire, Alsace, and more.
Learn the history of France’s wine culture and the all important concept of “terroir”. Have fun with the basics of the French language and enjoy savory culinary treats from select wine regions. French music and a well-traveled wine instructor and chef in his own right will greet you at the door. And what's better than French wine? French wine paired with a taste of traditional cuisine, of course, for an evening of “la joie de la vie”!
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine and cuisine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise. Taste wine as it was meant to be enjoyed, paired to perfection with regional recipes.
Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences. And best of all, you’ll leave us with greater confidence, passion and understanding of the grapes so you can ultimately experience the pleasure of wine.
