Sensory Wine Class – Thur. July 23rd – 6:30pm (Springdale, PA)

If you cannot make this date email me! More people have contacted me and I am currently planning classes on alternative dates. Also, if you have a group of ten or more, we can plan a private class.

Have you ever felt paralyzed when someone asked you, what do you think of this wine?

Sure, you can say “I like it”, or “I don’t like it”, but have you ever wished you could comment more on the bouquet, the flavors, the way it feels in your mouth?

In this relaxed, introductory class, you will be able to learn how to pick out some characteristics of some popular wine varietals, and feel more confident when asked this question.

Some other factoids will be shared during the class will clear up some common misconceptions about wine tasting, related to tannins, sulfites, cork smelling, and how to spit gracefully.

Wine will be provided (but of course!) along with cheese and crackers.
Please bring a notebook with you.

A little bit about me, for those of you who I haven’t met yet.

I have trained at the Culinary Institute of America’s Professional Wine School, and have been teaching people about wine since 2006.

I am a member of the La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, and am passionate about wine and adult learning!

Cost of this class is $35.00, and is limited to 20 participants
