FoodWinePairing

Food & Wine Pairing

Can a well-chosen wine really elevate the flavor of foods? What do “oaky,” “earthy” and “buttery” really mean, and what do these wines match best with? When confronted with a menu full of unfamiliar bottles, how do you choose the best pairing for a dish? These are just a few of the questions addressed in this intensive tasting class, which closely examines the complex and fascinating relationship between wine and food.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

After covering the basics of wine grapes, styles and descriptors, you’ll delve deep into flavor dynamics. By learning to identify a wine’s predominant notes—whether tannic, acidic or sweet—and experimenting with how they complement a range of food flavors (smoky, earthy and spicy, to name a few), you’ll move toward mastering fundamental pairing principles that will serve you well long after class is over.

Refine your palate, glass-by-glass, over these six sessions, and develop a well-rounded appreciation for the intricacies of food and wine pairings. Champagne and popcorn, anyone?

Fundamentals of Wine

Like any great field of study, wine appreciation is a life-long endeavor. It can start out intimidating and mysterious, but with structured guidance, a fascinating world of smell, taste and flavor – can awaken. In this intensive 3-day program, learn to taste and describe wine as we travel through commercially important wine regions of the world.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

We begin with the historical context of the great regions of Europe and taste benchmark examples of the classic styles – from sparkling to still, to fortified. We’ll make sense of how these wines came to be and their current relevance in the global wine market.

Not to be outdone, the regions we refer to as the New World, the Americas, the Antipodes and South Africa, have an equally compelling story to tell. We’ll taste the New Classics and draw comparisons to, and discern differences from, their Old World predecessors. In a global market, it’s the planet’s vineyards competing for market share! With our 3-day intensive training, you’ll begin to think differently about the business of wine and – to your great pleasure – eat and drink more deeply with your new life skills.
