Thanksgiving at The Wine School

Posted by Keith Wallace

A shot from the past! Thanksgiving 2010.

Thanksgiving is upon us and with that comes entertaining friends and family, many coming from out of town. Make your holiday weekend ever more festive and memorable by attending one of the Thanksgiving Wine Classes at The Wine School of Philadelphia.

On Wednesday, “The Wines of Spain” will be conducted at Time Restaurant, our Center City classroom. Spain boasts wines from the famous region of Rioja to the lesser-known regions of Priorat and Riax Baixas. This is one of the school’s favorite classes to teach as there are some amazing Spanish wines available, and they won’t break the bank. You may just learn about a few wines that will go wonderfully with the next day’s dinner.

On Friday, following that big day of eating and sleep, join us as we clarify (and taste) some of the most common but confusingly named wines around. In “What the *#*A!” is Cabernet Franc?” we offer folks the chance to experience the major differences as well as the relationships between the following grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. A great opportunity to nail down the differences of some of the better known, albeit confusing, wines.

And definitely don’t miss out on “The Big Red Smackdown” taking place Saturday. This special Smackdown is being held in honor of Vince McMahon of the WWE, and those lucky enough to snatch up these tickets will be drinking the favorite red wines from the school’s founder and his team of high-spirited instructors. You don’t want to miss the chance to listen to these men argue and banter all while tasting and learning about favorite wines from their individual cellars.
