How to Bluff Your Way Though Wine

Why is one wine lemony and refreshing, while another is chewy and meaty?  Why does one wine complement shrimp and another a juicy T-bone?  Join Advanced Sommelier, Mary Ross, as she shows you how the answers lie in four simple variables that determine all wine flavors.  Learn these variables to understand how all wine
is the same and each wine – sometimes each bottle – unique. We’ll also explore wine history, wine chemistry, food pairings and practice professional tasting techniques.  This class is a must for entry-level wine drinkers and a fun refresher for aficionados.  Tasting includes 5 international wines and tasting noshes.
