Product Description

Wine can be equal parts enjoyable and intimidating. For many it’s even difficult to answer a server’s seemingly simple question like What do you like in a wine? If you know someone who is longing to increase their understanding, comfort, and excitement level about this nectar of the gods, then this course is an ideal gift. Sommelier Hélène Fertal will guide participants on the basics, giving insight on how to properly taste wine, different grape varieties, varying regions, and wine production. As a bonus, the class also delves into food and wine pairing techniques.
