This popular class introduces your palate to a variety of wines while the instructor discusses what to look for in a good wine. Students must be at least 21 years old.
Due to the expense of the wines served, your online payment/check will serve as your registration. We must receive your registration payment no later than 10 days prior to the start date of the class. These classes are held with a minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 12.
Wine tasting classes are held in the dining room of the historic Eccles mansion, please enter through the east (kitchen) entrance.
Best Bottle: In this workshop, instead of the usual complement of four wines, we will enjoy pairs of different varietals each evening (eg. 2 Chardonnays and 2 Shirazes). One sample of each pair will be priced c. $10-15, and the other $20-40. Our "task" will be to determine if the extra expense is justified. This focused approach will allow us to spend a bit more on each bottle, and perhaps, to explore wine/cheese matches in a more systematic way. As has been our custom, the instructor will bring the first week's selection then the class will determine the varietals it wishes to explore during the final two weeks of the course. Join us!
