Sure, wine tastes good, but there’s more to the good stuff than just “red” or “white.” Where were the grapes grown? What was the climate like there? What was the micro-climate there? What variety of grapes were used? When was the wine bottled? How was the wine fermented? How was the wine stored?
These are all questions that make wine…well…wine. Specifically, you’ll learn to distinguish wines by grape, vintage, and region as you take a 90 minute class at Black Bear Wines & Spirits in Westport. The classes are held Saturdays from 1 to 2:30 and normally cost $50 each, but there’s a special Groupon going on now. You’ll pay just $25 for a wine tasting and class for one or $49 for two people.
