Wine Profiles: Gain a better understanding of your wine preferences

Everyone’s palate and wine preferences are different. And with so many wines to choose from, how do you decide what’s best for you? Wine Profiles can help. Think of it as the “make-up counter experience” or “golf club fitting”, but with wine. We will lead you through a tasting of 6 wines to help you deconstruct your preferences. At the end you will have a greater understanding of why you like certain wines over others and the specific characteristics to look for when choosing wine. Choose a white or red profile for your group.

Everything Rosé

Every time is the right time for Rosé. This special seasonal class welcomes the new fleet of Rosé wines just as the weather begins to warm up. The new Rosé releases each spring are one of the hottest things to happen in the wine industry. You’ll learn the different techniques used to craft rosé wines, the effect of climate and grape variety on the finished wine, the history of drinking pink, and more. We'll cover the different ways Rosé is made, our latest favorites & perfect pink pairings!

Perfect Pairings: Wine & Cheese

It’s hard to imagine a pairing more classically perfect than that of cheese and wine. The perfect combination of these two items can create perfect harmony on your palate. Like wine, cheese varies in intensity, quality, boldness, and sweetness, and it also can be characterized by a sense of place or terroir. In this class, we’re pairing six wines with an array of cheeses to gain a better understanding of which cheese types best match your favorite wines. In this pairing session, we’re revealing all the secrets to a seamless marriage of cheese and wine. 

Tour of Italy

Have you ever been overwhelmed by the seemingly endless variety of Italian wines? Don't worry, we've all been there. Imagine a land with more than 1,000 native grape varieties and hundreds of regional styles and nuances. It's all part of what makes Italy the inexhaustible spring of delicious and varied wines. In this introductory class, we'll cover the major winemaking regions of Italy and their most famous styles and grapes. We'll taste through six wines from north to south that have each their own flair and long history and regional cuisines.

Exploring South Africa

While it might not necessarily be a wine region on your radar, South Africa has been producing grapes and wine since the mid-1600s. Some grape varieties that you might already know like Chenin Blanc called Steen and Cabernet Franc are found in South Africa. Other red grapes include Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, and Tinta Barroca are also successful throughout the country's six large geographical areas. So what makes South African wines so unique? It's the ingenious blend of Old World traditionalism and the fruit-driven modern practices of the New World. Come find out for yourself.
