Tuesday February 7th – SOLD OUT
Monday, February 6th at 6:00pm – SOLD OUT
The process of turning pinot noir grapes into wine can be challenging, but the result has been called “sex in a glass,” so get ready for an evening of sensory excitement. The most “feminine” of red wines is about sophistication, elegance, subtlety, and balance. Join us for a flight of Pinot spanning the globe, each offering its own beguiling whispers of seduction. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise.
Sommelier Secrets + Wine Workout –Tuesday March 7th -SOLD OUT
Learn how to make cheap wine taste like a more expensive bottle and also how to buy great wine by just reading the fine print. In this class, we let you in on the trade secrets that will change how you buy and serve wine. We won’t blindfold you, but we will pour the wines “blind” — meaning you won’t be told what you’re tasting at first. Hone your deductive tasting skills and learn how to tell the difference between different grapes. Will will also do a little nose workout to help improve your wine senses.
Odd Couplings –Tuesday April 4th
News flash: Pairing food and wine doesn’t have to be fussy. In fact, it can be a whole lot of fun. We can’t say there are no rules to wine pairing because there are, bitter goes with sweet, fat goes with acid, blah blah whatever. But rules are made to be broken, or at the very least bent. Taste with us some of our favorite unexpected pairings. Note: you will not find these in your father’s next issue of Fancy Wine Stuff
Patio Wine and Pooches –Tuesday May 30th
You love your dog. You love wine. Lucky for you and Fido, you don’t have to choose between the two. Grab your pooch and enjoy a summer wine tasting. Expect to taste several wines in a casual setting while mingling with guest and their furry friends!
During this interactive class you will compare and contrast samples that have been prepared to explore the sensory experiences of acids and tannins. This introductory class will allow you begin to understand your preferences and wine style and will give you a vocabulary to share with your friends and to confidently order unfamiliar wine.
