Wine Tasting 101
Structured to be accessible to both professional bartenders and interested amateurs, we aim to remove much of the mystery and intimidation that surrounds selecting the correct wine. In a relaxed and accessible environment, you will experience 6 distinct wines. As you discuss each wine, you will learn about the history of the grape and the region that it was grown in. This will help you to appreciate the differences in color, scent, taste and texture between the wines. You will also discover how to pair wine with food. At the end of the evening you will leave us confident in your ability to swirl, swish and select the best wine. You will receive a Bar Craft Certificate for completing our Wine Seminar. *This seminar is also available for private groups, call or email for details.
