May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Tune up your wine vocabulary the easy way with one great night of tasting and talking about wine in Mandarin!

Not sure if you know the difference between red, white and rosé?  What are sparkling wines and why aren’t they all called Champagne? How does Sauvignon Blanc differ from Cabernet Sauvignon?  The Boston Wine School is here to help answer those questions and more. “Wine 101” is the ideal curriculum for wine lovers just starting their explorations of wine.

You will learn about the four major wine styles and focus in on four of the most popular wine grape varieties. In the process, you will learn basic technical wine tasting skills and how to describe the different personalities of these wines.

A selection of cheeses and antipasto will be served during class to introduce some basics of pairing wine and food.

This introductory class is perfect for beginners and enthusiasts, even if you speak only a little of the language.
