Event: Wine 101

December 15, 2011 by  

Wine 101 is a fun, friendly intro to some of the well-known grapes and wine styles. You’re invited to take part on Friday, Jan 13, 2012 from 7-9pm.

The world of wine is vast and that can be intimidating – but not at this seminar. I will break it down to the basics and give you a good foundation of wine knowledge. At La Table Commune, there are a maximum of 12 guests, so you will have ample opportunity to join the discussion and get all of your questions answered by a familiar face.

Your global wine adventure will include eight classic styles of wine and a discussion of each one, where it comes from and the grapes it is made from. Whether you’re a wine newbie or you’ve been drinking wine for decades, you’re sure to try something new and learn a little something along the way. If you find a new favourite, you will enjoy a 10 per cent discount on your shopping after the event.

Knowing what you like and what to expect from different bottles of wine can really help you to make wine purchases that are better suited to your own taste.  This class will give you the tools you need to identify and describe what you like and you can use these tools to continue to learn every time you taste a wine. Cheese will be provided from Benton Brothers Fine Cheese and we will have a chance to discuss pairing wine with food.

There’s no better winter getaway than a quick trip around the globe – and travelling with me is always an intoxicating adventure.
