Does reading the voluminous and almost garish wine tasting notes written by the most influential wine critics leave you scratching your head? Or looking for a draft beer spigot to nuzzle up to when nobody is looking? We understand. Truth be told, it leaves us scratching our heads too! Our approach in this class is different.
  • You will learn to identify acidity, alcohol, tannin, fruit, wood influence and general varietal characteristics in wine.
  • We will address the unending challenge of describing wine, and help you better express your wishes in a retail or restaurant setting.
  • You will learn to be a more discerning taster.
  • You will leave class feeling more confident in your tasting abilities, and eager to share what you have learned with family and friends.

  • To guarantee the quality of your experience, seating is limited. Reservations are required, and will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis. We will gladly refund your reservation with at least 48 hours notice.
