Week 1, Jan 21st - Tasting Fundamentals & Wine Lingo - We will cover the basics of how to taste and evaluate a wine. During this process we will also cover how a wine is structured and start learning your wine vocabulary. What the heck does “barnyard” mean in a wine? Do you really know what a “dry” wine is? Is “acid” a good word or a bad word? We will unpack to misunderstood wines!
Week 2, Jan 28th - Natural Wine - Most people are starting to hear the term, “Natural Wine” but not everyone knows exactly what that means. Since there’s no certification process like organic, there’s a bit of confusion behind it. Not after this class and hopefully we make you a believer if you haven’t drank the Koolaid (natural wine) already. Pet-Nat Bubbles and some Chillable Red!
Week 3, Feb 4th - Old World vs New World - Is your poison a rustic Chianti from Italy or a buttery Chardonnay from California? This class will unpack some of the general differences between the two styles of wine with a little history sprinkled in. Understanding the differences between the two is a great foundation for wine knowledge. Two different expressions of Orange wines!
Week 4, Feb 11th - Enology & Viticulture - Now that you have a better understanding overall of wine let’s take a small dip into the vast complexities of the science behind growing and making wine. With special guest speaker!!
