Make Way for Dumplings (Class + Dinner) | Boston Wine School @ VINOvations

February 2, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Happy Chinese New Year!  

The traditional Chinese New Year celebration always includes dumplings which are symbolic of wealth and fortune.  Dumplings are packed with flavor.  There is a wide variety of fillings and preparations, and, of course, there must also be dipping sauce.  Dumplings provide an ideal method for learning how to pair wine with Asian dishes and flavors.

Please join us for Celebrate Chinese New Year with Wine and Dumplings.  This 2 hour class will introduce the fundamentals of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.  In the process, you will learn how to assess and describe the different personalities of the wines.
