Upcoming Wine Tastings Classes
New Zealand & Australia Wines Tired of illustrations of Kangaroos and Kiwis? Yeah, me too. Why is it that wine cultures get reduced to their worst moments? The truth is that New Zealand and Australia are home to far more great wines –and a stellar diversity of grapes– than most people ever realize. In this wine tasting, you get to experience wines you never knew existed, and ones that rarely end up in America. Thursday, October 28 at 7:30 pm. Only 5 in-person seats remain. Wines of South Africa South Africa is one of the great wine-growing countries. Their wine styles take the best of France and Australia and fuse them into something unique and wonderful. This is a country that produces stellar Cabernet Sauvignon, age-worthy Syrah, and top-flight Pinot Noir. If you haven’t been exposed to these wines –or want to learn more about the country – you owe it to yourself to come and experience the best-kept secrets in the wine world: South African wine. Thursday, November 11 at 7:30 pm Wine 101: Learn About Wine If you are new to the study of wine — or simply new to the Wine School of Philadelphia — this class is for you. Here, you will experience each of the Wine School’s hallmarks: dispelling industry rumors, banishing popular wine myths, and delivering information in an easy-to-understand manner. Developed by a U.C. Davis winemaker and honed over ten years of teaching experience, it represents a singular view of wine education. Allow us to share it with you! Thursday, November 4th at 7:30 pm Mixology: The Cocktail Creation Class Learn to build the perfect cocktail in this hands-on workshop. With the guidance of our top sommelier-instructor, you will be crafting innovative new cocktails and discovering your inner mixologist. We aren’t a bartending school, and you won’t learn how to juggle vodka bottles in this class. Instead, you will learn the basics of mixology, explore flavors, and develop your own signature cocktail.
