    A fun time for all - learning about a favorite variety of wine while learning how to taste and appreciate your wine in a reusable, methodical way.  Have you ever wondered about those people who can smell strawberries in their wine, or who talk about a wine’s “finish”?  Or maybe you already feel comfortable tasting and ordering wine, but just want some practice with a like-minded group?  Join this interactive session - on Zoom - where you practice techniques and language for assessing a wine:

    • Visually
    • Aromatically
    • By flavor

    ...and then drawing some conclusions.

    For this session, we'll all enjoy a Burgundy White (Chardonnay) available at Peck's Wine & Spirits in Warwick for $18.00:  2019 Domaine des Verchères Mâcon-Villages.  Participants must provide their own wine.  Please register in order to receive the Zoom link in advance.
