Get to know different wines with Ami Gangemella, a Wine Educator who will help you step out of your comfort zone and taste wines from budget-friendly regions around the world.
Looking for interesting and affordable wines beyond the common varietals? 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. A complete list of wine will be available prior to the start of class.
NOTE: Students MUST be age 21 or older to participate!
NOTE: A companion class with instructor Russ Lorber will be offered in Traditions Week 2.
Each class will cover:
Students can purchase wine wherever available (local store or online) to meet their budgets.
Schedule a week or two, or three! Or, just sprinkle some classes in between other commitments.
