We have designed this series of classes for people looking to dip their toes into wine but aren’t sure where to begin, (or even people who just want to go back to basics!). In this four part series, we will be exploring wines through four lenses: Tasting, Describing, Reading, and Geography. In each one, we will sample a broad range of wine styles and use these themes to explore these selections in greater detail. By the end of the series, you’ll be walking down the wine aisle with confidence!
Tasting – May 7th
In this class we will explore the basics of tasting wine: Look, Smell, Taste. We will explore major varietals and regions as a way of understanding how wine can vary from country to country. We will also explore the impact that certain food flavors (bitter, sour, salty, sweet) have on our palate and how to start thinking about what to drink with dinner!
Describing – May 21st
When someone asks you what kind of wine do you like, do you feel stumped? Maybe you just say “Reds!” or “Definitely not chardonnay.” In this class, we’ll help you understand how to describe wine (medium bodied, acidic, tannic) so that you’ll be walking out talking about earthy, high acidity, cool climate pinot noir (for example) in no time!
Reading – June 4th
In this class, we will be looking at the label to see what we can learn about a wine without needing to pull out your Vivino! Understanding whether a wine is bottled at the estate where it was grown, its appellation, or the region can all give us clues as to whether it might be something of quality. We will use this theme to explore 4 different wines from across the world.
Geography – June 18th
Why can’t you find any good riesling in Spain? Or Grenache in Germany? We will use this class to explore the ways that climate and geography impact wine. We will use this theme to explore 4 different wines from across the world.
