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?
