Wines of Winter | Boston Wine School @ Brookline Adult Ed

January 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


As we indulge in wholesome hearty food during the winter months, it is vital to find a wine that can stand up to the seasonal flavors. Winter wines are richer and spicier, offering depth and complexity, which perfectly complement winter dishes. However, choosing the right winter wine not only for your meal, but to lift your spirits and your body temperature can sometimes be difficult. Learn why it is so important to change your wine list during the colder months. You’ll taste some big bodied winter whites like Marsanne from southern California. Get ready to taste and understand a range of engaging reds: Alicante Bouschet from Portugal, California Petit Verdot, Italian Primitivo, and more. Intrigued? Join us!

Appetizers and an assortment of cheeses will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food.
