First Wine Discovery Class in the Books!

I'm happy to report that TruthInJuice.com's first Wine Discovery class at Levity was a success. Last night, we explored the basics of wine tasting and wine appreciation, and learned about wine tasting techniques, what a wine's color can tell you about the wine, the difference between dry wines and sweet wines, between light bodied wines and full bodied wines, and whether a wine can be "fruity" without being sweet.

We tasted the following five wines:

For those of you who missed the first class, we've decided to extend the registration, and allow additional sign-ups for the class, as well as allowing participants to sign up for individual classes, as space allows. 

The cost of registration for the remaining five classes will be $90. Registrations for individual classes will be $20, and will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Classes will continue to be capped at 20 people, and in the event of space constraints, first priority will be given to those who have signed up for the entire course.

The remaining classes will address the following topics:

  • Week 2, 10/29/12, "The US and Key Winemaker Decisions" - Effects of oak aging, malolactic fermentation, and blending
  • Week 3, 11/5/12, "Introduction to Terroir" - What is terroir? We'll discuss.
  • Week 4, 11/12/12, "France" - Introduction to the wines of France
  • Week 5, 11/19/12, "Italy" - Introduction to the wines of Italy
  • Week 6, 11/26/12, "Champagne and Final Class Celebration" - Champagne and class review

Hope to see you at one of these upcoming classes! Go to http://www.levityvt.com/event/wine-discovery-class, to sign up!
