Get to know the great variety of wines in a supportive environment.
Looking for interesting and affordable wines beyond the common varietals? Much like the Week 1 course, we will make wine more approachable and help you explore its great variety in a non-intimidating environment. Each class will profile a varietal and the traditions of winemakers in the Old and New Worlds, with a tasting of that varietal. In Europe, wine is usually consumed with food, and we will discuss simple ideas for what works together. Students will gain a basic appreciation of the diversity of styles around the world and have a practical guide for browsing store shelves or a restaurant list. 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 3.
