Wine 101 | please check back soon!
Before I went to school to study for my sommelier certification, my wine knowledge could fit in a thimble. Even though I’d been to cooking school, lived in France and consumed copious amounts of wine, I quickly realized that I had never really tasted the wine.
My goal is to take the intimidation out of wine, to make it fun and accessible and to expand your exposure to the world of wine so that you can easily navigate a wine list, select the perfect bottle to bring to a friend or simply enjoy a glass of wine at home.
Classes will be conducted live via Zoom, fully interactive and all hands-on tasting. We will discuss food pairings with each wine and as this is an interactive class, participants are encouraged to ask questions in real-time as we are tasting together.
