Come sip wine and learn with us in our relaxing, question-friendly environment. Our new Winter Term focuses on the basics of wine glassware, wine tasting, wine terminology, wine making, wine & food pairing and wine grapes. The six-course term will be offered on consecutive Wednesdays from 7-8pm, from January 19th through February 23rd. Courses will be taught by Anna Trost, former owner of Wine & Cheese by TCC, who has over 17 years of experience in the wine retail and hospitality industry.

There are 3 options for you to attend:

The course lineup includes:

Course 1 – January 19th: Red Solo Cup or Wine Glass? Does using the right wine glass make a difference? You bet it does. But don’t take our word for it, experience it for yourself and get 4 Riedel glasses to enjoy at home and to bring to the remaining classes! $85 per person, includes a Riedel Performance Tasting Set ($138 value)

Course 2 – January 26th: Did someone put cherries in my wine glass? Learn how to identify the specific aromas and flavors in your wine. $35 per person

Course 3 – February 2nd: Tannic, Acidic, and Dry? Oh my! What are they talking about? Learn about the basic wine terms you always hear but are afraid to ask. $35 per person

Course 4 – February 9th: So, you hate Chardonnay, huh? You may not, if it was made differently. Discover the impact of terroir, viticulture, and winemaking on the taste of a wine. $35 per person

Course 5 – February 16th: What wine do I pair with my Pirate’s Booty? Yes, we love wine with everything and we’ll show you how easy it is to pair wine with food. $45 per person, includes cheese and chocolate pairings

Course 6 – February 23rd: You -“I love me some Fiano!” Me – “Who the heck is Fiano???” Get to know your wine grapes, including some you may not have heard of! $35 per person

We know that some of you prefer to participate in these courses from home. We’ve got you covered! We will be offering each course live via Zoom, concurrently with the in-person courses. All you have to do is purchase your ticket for virtual and you will get a zoom link ahead of time that week and then pick up your course tasting kit at Wine & Cheese between 4pm-6:30pm on the day of the course.
