Fundamentals of Wine: Beginners Only
An Educational Wine Experience
Sure, you enjoy drinking wine, but can you pair it with your favorite foods? Can you speak the talk and tell the difference between key white and red varietals and styles?
Come to terms with the world of wine in a special tasting that helps you understand wine and how it’s made, while learning about key varietals and regions so you can express yourself and truly enjoy what’s in your glass. In this unique class, you’ll enjoy tasting a variety of wines while an expert (wine coach) explains common expressions and key characteristics used to explain each wine. You will also learn the lexicon of wine, food & wine pairing basics, buying/storing/serving tips, and all the while expand your palate and discover new favorites. Learning about wine has never been easier or more fun!
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise.
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.
