NEW! Raise Your Wine IQ
3 sessions, 4.5 hours
Ever wonder why someone “swirls and sniffs,” or what wines to serve at your dinner or cocktail party? This course is designed to help you enhance your knowledge and enjoyment of wine. After a brief history of wine, you will learn how wine is made today. Learn how to taste wine and how to identify what it is about a wine that you like. Through tastings, you will learn to identify the characteristic components of fine wine. Putting your wine knowledge to work will include the basic principles of wine and food pairing, buying, storing, serving and evaluating wine. Optional homework assignments will be suggested.
Please Note: As the sense of smell is a major factor in tasting wine, please refrain from wearing any scented lotions, perfumes, aftershaves, etc.
