Wine Appreciation Basics: What You Absolutely Need to Know About Wine

Thursday, May 21

 

Even if you’ve made your way through the entire bottom shelf of red and white at your local grocery store, there’s a good likelihood you still have a thing or two to learn about wine. You'll have your chance this Wednesday at the Wine Appreciation Basics class at Vincent’s Market Bistro. The two and a half hour course includes tastings and discussion, covering topics such as how grapes are grown, how to read a wine label, and the fundamentals of wine varietals. Learn what wines you like and why, giving you the confidence to order in a restaurant or pick up a bottle for yourself at the store. Cost is $59, or $110 for two, and includes tasting portions of eight different wines, plus small bites and appetizers. Class starts at 6 p.m. at Vincent Market Bistro at 3930 East Camelback Road.
