I always promise to let people know about good, affordable and FUN wine classes, and there’s one coming up. I’ve taken Monica’s classes before and she’s top notch, a class act from an Italian wine family. She worked at Wine.com before the bust, when they had a lot of money and tasted everything. I’m particularly interested in this class, which helps you put words to the flavors in wine. A must-attend. To sign up visit the Lafayette Community Center site. Click on Winter Recreation and open the PDF class schedule. Here are the basics:
Putting Wine into Words: Friday, February 23rd 6:30 to 9PM. Cost: $27 plus $15 supply fee.
Tasting is, of course, an extremely subjective exercise and you must ultimately let your own palate be your guide. Nobody is born knowing how to taste wine. But tasting is a skill you can learn, just as you learn to dance or play tennis. Unless you want others to tell you what to drink all your life, you’ll need to develop the ability to taste. It’s easy, and practicing is a pleasure.
