You don’t need to be book smart to be wine smart. In this class, you’ll learn that wine has nothing to do with IQ. It has everything to do with passion and exposure to good wine.

Tonight, you will learn how to taste and talk like a natural-born sommelier. You will gain first-hand experience with one of the top sommeliers in Philadelphia. And you’ll uncover the mysteries of taste, flavor, and style. It’s the best kind of show AND tell!

This class was designed by Keith Wallace, winner of the Best Wine Reviewer award by the WBA in 2014 and named one of Philly’s top sommeliers by CBS News. It’s a smart and fun class that offers plenty for any wine lover, regardless of knowledge level.
