What's wrong with most introductory wine classes? Too much emphasis on the bewildering world of varietals, regions and styles and not enough on simply engaging with what's in the glass. In our Wine 101 class, Formaggio Kitchen's wine buyers Megan Guidarelli and Stephen Meuse will put you in touch with the primary components common to all wine, demonstrate what sensory impressions they make and show you how to focus your attention on them—individually and in concert. You'll learn about what makes red wine different from white (it's not just color), how to uncork a bottle of still or sparkling wine with panache, and get up to speed on the basics of food and wine pairing (it's not as tricky as you think) — all while enjoying delicious Formaggio Kitchen small plates.
We guarantee you'll come away with a heightened awareness of all that wine has to give and new confidence in choosing and serving it to your family and guests. So join us for a night of fun and education that will broaden your knowledge and appreciation of wine!
NOTE: This class is held at our Classroom Annex, not our retail location. The annex is located at 67 Smith Place in Cambridge, and we highly recommend reviewing the directions available here.
