2555 Main Street

In this series of classes you’ll learn, and remember, and focus on eight common characteristics of the featured grape variety, plus how to examine the wines for color, acidity, alcohol level, tannin, and the ever elusive “complexity.” After some sensory warm-up, you’ll be able to taste through a flight of five wines from all around the globe, including Parallel Wines, pick your favorites, and describe them like an expert. Pick up shopping, aging, storage and food, and wine pairing tips along the way. 

Your $100 ticket includes this informative and fun course, plus a bottle of Parallel Wines to take home. Tickets are non-refundable after Friday, April 26th.
