This six-week course will look at the numerous factors wine lovers should think about when tasting a wine. The huge variety we see in the wines of the world is reflected in aroma and taste that are unique to each varietal, and how they are viewed is based on many other factors. The most important of these may be where the grapes grew, how they were grown, and how the winemaker chose to deal with them. Wines continue to change from the date the last bubble of fermentation rises in the vat until the cork is pulled, and until the bottle is empty. This class will feature tastings from the instructor’s own collection, so please bring a glass from home if you wish to participate.
