Learn the basics of wine enjoyment.
Wine is a gift from Nature, and part of a healthy diet. It can also be lots of fun! Our aim is to enjoy ourselves while learning about the basics of wine. There is a lot of confusing misinformation out there. But at bottom, it’s quite simple. We’ll taste, talk about, and enjoy some of the basic types. We’ll look at how to choose a wine to accompany a meal - It’s much easier than we have been led to believe. There will be time for questions you may have. Your guide on this adventure has planted vineyards, harvested them, designed wineries on three continents, and made millions of bottles in the past decades. His wines have won more than 500 medals in national and international competitions. He also has some stories to tell, about his adventures, and the amazing characters he has met along the way. Participants will be given a list of 5 varietals (i.e. Syrah, but not a specific produce) to purchase ahead of the course.
NOTE: Students MUST be age 21 or older to participate!
NOTE: Companion classes, with other instructors and different wines will be offered in Weeks 1 and 2.
