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.

New Years resolutions of ‘eat more artisan cheese’ or ‘stop buying the same wines’ or ‘go local at the pub & drink different beers’ or ‘give blue cheese a chance’ make our team of Sommeliers smile – BIG time.

Once you venture into the world of wine, artisan cheese & craft beer, you can make delicious discoveries. The hardest part (if there is a hard part) is starting.  Don’t despair because we have made it easy to keep your 2014 resolutions and begin as soon as this month!

The class will naturally take place in Ottawa’s coolest wine venue: Must Kitchen & Wine Bar in the Byward Market.  Gourmet lunch is included to give you first hand experience with food & wine pairing. This class always sells out, so register early & save $15 or bring 4 friends for a special group price.  Everyone, regardless of their wine knowledge….is sure to learn more about the world of wine & have a new shopping wine list.
