Come To Cheeses! Wine + Cheese Tasting Workshop | Boston Wine School @ Roslindale

Wine and cheese are a naturally delicious combination. They’ve been together for 8,000 years that we know of, and our species has been busy figuring out ways to make both of them more and more delicious all the time. The match of wine and cheese is partly natural and automatic, but by applying ourselves, our tastes, our abilities to understand and choose, we can put together pairings that are many times greater than just the sum of the parts.

This class – limited to 14 students – will taste six major wine and cheese combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament.

Night In Tuscany (Class + Dinner) | Boston Wine School @ VINOvations

Join us for a the ultimate in virtual wine tourism: a wine and food tour of Tuscany without ever leaving the Boston Wine School! Get yourself ready for a broad range of Tuscan wines, from crisp whites to gutsy bold reds. This class is going to experience the whole geography of what Tuscany has to offer. Wine is produced in every region of Italy, and we are just going to scratch the surface of Tuscany when it comes to exploring the thousands of different varieties and styles of Italian wine.

The evening focuses on a mini-wine tour of the Tuscan region. Appetizers and cheese will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food. You’ll experience the culinary sights, smells and tastes of Italy via your wine glass and plate. By the end of the evening, someone will know their Chianti from Chianti Classico!

After class, put your education to the test over a delicious wine dinner from the chefs at Bottega Fiorentina. We’ll make a major food match with a Tuscan white and red specially selected for the menu.
