Demonstration Class | Wine Tasting & Wine Nibbles
Thu 1/20/2022    6:30-8:30 p.m.

Class Description: 

Let’s learn about wine with a pro!  This special 2-hour class is designed for those with an appreciation for one of the world’s oldest beverages.  Learn from scratch (or refresh your skills) with Instructor and Certified Sommelier Brent Grider.

The goal of the class will be to gain a working knowledge of the various grape varietals and then gauge what styles of wine appeal most to you and why. We’ll also understand the how to’s of selecting wines you’ll enjoy, the wine-making process (including sparkling wines), how to read a wine label and a wine list, proper glassware, how to open a bottle, what factors contribute to the quality of a wine and major wine producing countries.  That’s a lot of ground to cover but we’ll do it.

Don’t worry, we’ll also do some tasting, as well, because how the heck can you learn if you don’t taste….right? 

You will no longer have to use the “close your eyes and point” approach to choosing a wine at your local purveyor or in a restaurant.  Won’t you be clever! 


NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
