Wine Appreciation 101 ‘Class’
Back by popular demand! Join me for my annual Wine Appreciation 101 ‘Class’ on Saturday January 18. It is a fun-filled day enjoying wines from around the world that you may have never tried, learning wine lingo, tasting the difference glassware makes & deciphering a restaurant wine list. And because I absolutely LOVE wine, I will share all kinds of tips & tricks . . . even show you how easy it is to sabre (yes, with a sword) a bottle of bubbly!
Everyone, regardless of your wine knowledge . . . is sure to have fun learning more about the world of wine & have a shopping list of new favorite wines.
Cheese FUN-damentals ‘Class’
NEW! On Saturday January 25th, come in from the cold & learn about fabulous fromages with our Cheese Sommelier Vanessa Simmons. She will introduce you to cheeses from around the world, share stories about cheesemakers while you learn the ‘whey’ to buy cheese, make a delicious cheese board & talk the talk like a ‘BIG Cheese’!
And there’ll be a pop quiz . . . is artisan cheese better with wine or craft beer? Think you know the answer? Your tastebuds may be in for a surprise!
Set your PVR or tune in to CTV Ottawa Morning this Thursday January 16th at 8:45am. Vanessa will be sharing tips on how to create a delicious cheese board.
