Class Description: 

In France, drinking wine with a meal is the norm. There, we said it. But why wouldn’t they? The French have some of the most outstanding wines in the world but to the average person, the idea of ordering a French wine in a restaurant can feel like an insurmountable task.

The goal of tonight’s wine lesson will help you get an understanding of the singular world of French wines.   It will also get you a little more comfortable in the French section of your local wine shop or when ordering off a wine list. Let’s sip, swirl, taste and learn the basics about French wines. Which to choose with your meal….and why. Which wines come from which regions?

You’ll learn as an expert wine aficionado and certified sommelier, Brent Grider, discusses a few of the major regions like Burgundy, Bordeaux, Loire, Champagne, Langeudoc, Roussillon, and more. We’ll serve some little nibbles for you to enjoy as you mingle and sample different French wine selections that range from delicious to delectable while Brent discusses the famed wine region that each wine originates from.
