Burgers & Bordeaux: Fundamentals of Wine & Food Pairing | Boston Wine School @ Roslindale
April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$79.00
Sure, Bordeaux is famous — maybe a little too famous for its own good sometimes. We’re going to shed the snobbery and take it down a notch by sampling fancy French Cabernet and Merlot with a selection of fun beef, lamb, turkey sliders, and more.
Taste what Bordeaux grapes have made of themselves internationally with great examples of Camenere, Malbec, even Petit Verdot. Trust me: this is not your father’s Bordeaux!
And this class is hands on: you’ll be tasting and learning Bordeaux while cooking and eating together in a fun interactive environment. You’ll learn how to make a quick and easy Bordelaise sauce that’s going to change how you experience wine and burgers forever.

YOUR HOST VENUE
Solera – A Shrine to Wine is a neighborhood specialty wine store nestled in the heart of Roslindale Square (Boston). The store, now in its 18th year is warmly decorated in green and deep purple resembling the colors of the grapes and filled with rack after rack of “offbeat wines”, pretty much everything a modern wine geek seeks out and loves, at more than reasonable prices. Indeed, with nearly 500 bottle selections from across the globe, unlike the monster chain stores and supermarkets, Solera takes a back seat to none and offers a stellar sampling of the world’s best and some unusual vineyards with average prices from 10 to 20 dollars or more, if your budget allows. Since wine education, and customer service are vital to our business, individual attention to the customer is the reason why the press has designated the Solera staff as “well versed grape-talkers”. When you want to smarten up on your wine there is no better place to do just that than in this little gem of a store, where wine is constantly being discussed with purpose and a smile!
