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.

NOTE: Students MUST be age 21 or older to participate!

NOTE: Companion classes, with other instructors and different wines will be offered in the other Traditions Weeks.

The varietals to be covered are:

  • Chenin Blanc
  • Albariño
  • Riesling
  • Carménère
  • Malbec

Each class will cover:

  • Grape variety
  • Regions they are most popular
  • food and wine pairings
  • Wine appreciation step
  • Open conversation about what is in their glass
  • Questions
  • after each discussion, a list of extra resources will be sent

Students can purchase wine wherever available (local store or online) to meet their budgets.
