Great Wine Made Simple

Saturday, October 12 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

In this session, we will taste major grape varieties, highlight important flavor profiles, and decode wine labeling, all while tasting eight delicious wines. We guarantee that you’ll be buying or ordering with confidence after one class. And always getting the wine you want, regardless of price!

First run in 2008, Great Wine Made Simple has become an important class in our “Learn About Wine” series of introductory classes. This class dispells the confusing wine jargon and replaces it with easy to understand language.  You don’t need a library of wine books to understand a wine label, but you do need this class.
