WINE 101: Wine Tasting for the Complete Novice | Boston Wine School @ Boston Public Market

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Not sure if you know the difference between red, white and rosé?  What are sparkling wines and why aren’t they called Champagne?  How does Sauvignon Blanc differ from Cabernet Sauvignon?

The Boston Wine School is here to help answer those questions and more.  Wine Tasting for the Complete Novice is an ideal class for those just starting their explorations of wine.

This 2 hour class will explain 4 major wine styles and focus in on 4 of the most popular wine grape varieties.   In the process, you will begin to learn basic wine tasting skills and how to describe the different personalities of these wines.  An assortment of cheeses and antipasto will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food.

Here at the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone.  We believe that learning about wine involves learning more about yourself.  Our goal is to help you understand and communicate what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine.  Come start your wine journey with us.
