Virtual class Wine/Cocktail

Looking for an antidote to the Winter doldrums?  Join Advanced Sommelier Mary Ross to explore fortified wines, classics to warm the soul and to elevate everyday appetizers, cheeses and desserts into epicurean delights.  We’ll taste three of the world’s finest fortifieds – Sherry, Vermouth and Port – learn their matchless production techniques and recount their histories, complete with adventure on the high seas, magic, murder and mystery!

To enhance your experience, we recommend you’re tasting the same wines with Mary Ross during class. Order your three bottles of wine for curbside pickup from The Chopping Block Lincoln Square on Tuesday 1/19, Thursday 1/21 or Saturday 1/23 from 3-5pm.
