Boston Massachusetts: With the holidays over, finding something fun to do during the winter months can be a nice thing. Growing your knowledge about something that's already a pleasure is especially good! So I thought I'd let you know about the upcoming wine classes I am teaching at the Boston Wine School in Allston (Commonwealth Avenue, not far from BU).
Do something now that will practically guarantee you'll enjoy wine even more!
Happy New Year!
Tour de France - Exploring the Wines of France Tuesdays Jan 28 through March 4 6:30-8:30pm (6 weeks, 2 hour classes) price: $375 / $62.50 per class. This includes cheese and gourmet nibbly plates, six or more wines to taste from various regions per session, and instruction and discussion led my me, Marc Soucy. Remove your questions and apprehension about understanding one of France's pride and joys: It's wine industry. Learn to read the labels, better understand what you like, and how to connect the dots. French wines are arguably among the best wines to enjoy with a meal, and this course will explain why. This 6-week course is very friendly for wine lovers with little or no experience with French wine, and is a great way to skyrocket your own knowledge. Many of the concepts are applicable to the rest of the world's wines also. I am a certified FWS (French Wine Society) and have become the Boston Wine School's point person where this area is concerned. I really enjoy spreading the word, so to speak.
Wine 101: Wine Tasting for the Complete Novice Thursdays Feb 13 through March 6 6:30-8:30pm (4 weeks, 2 hour classes price: $250 / $62.50 per class. Learn the hidden "mysteries" about what wine experts are talking about! The role of your sense of smell, how to order, how to evaluate, and how to identify your own likes and dislikes….and be able to talk about them to others! We'll explore about 25 wines over the 4 classes, and try to touch upon the entire world's styles, and discuss them all.
*** Notice these two course overlap. There will be a second Tour de France course starting up on Thursday, April 10, so if you want, you could take the Wine 101 course, and decide to take it to the next level in April.
