AT MERCHANDISE MART

Instructor: Mary Ross
Why is one wine lemony and refreshing, while another is chewy and meaty? Why does one wine complement shrimp and another a juicy T-bone? These answers lie in four simple variables that determine all wine flavors. Learn these variables to understand how all wine is the same and each wine-sometimes each bottle- unique. We'll also explore wine history, wine chemistry, food pairings and practice professional tasting techniques. This class is a must for entry-level wine drinkers and a fun refresher for aficionados. Tasting includes 5 international wines and tasting noshes.
