Intro to wine tasting class

You enjoy wine and want to learn how to appreciate and better understand (whether you agree or disagree) with wine descriptions. Learn to stand on your own and never fall for marketing again – take this course and acquire the tools for assessing wine on your own accord. Discover what you like and why! This class will provide you with the knowledge and vocabulary that will help you expand your boundaries while weeding out what you don’t like.


Have you taken wine classes before or read a book on wine? There are so many basic textbook-style 101 classes out there. My classes are the very opposite! You will be presented with practical knowledge on wine that you can take with you to any social setting. Learn how to find the best values while establishing how to assess your perception of wine.


In this two-hour class you will bond with your classmates while learning about the structure, styles and winemaking techniques


Nothing stuffy, just fun, relevant and fascinating guidance that will serve you well.
