Blind Tasting Cabernet Sauvignon’

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the worlds’ most popular grape varieties.  So much so, that it’s practically a ‘brand’.  It is grown in so many countries, and everyone likes its powerful tannins and black fruit.  Come and see what some of your favorite expressions are.  We will pick several from different countries, and put them in a brown bag. There is no test! This is simply so that you can keep an open mind, and can’t make any prejudgments! It’s always a fun , and of course guessing IS allowed!

Basic Food Component and Wine Pairing Class’

Do you ever find yourself standing in the aisle at your local wine store, with that ‘deer in the headlights look’ racking your brain to choose what wine you should have with dinner that night? Or sitting at your favorite restaurant, and your server informs you that they don’t even like the taste of wine? It can be so frustrating! This is a ‘hands on’ class that will help you understand some basic elements of food and wine pairing.  We will go through several different varietals and styles of wine, and pair them with different components (sweet, sour, spice, salt etc), so that you can taste for yourself what works and what doesn’t. This class will give you some building blocks to help you think on your feet when the need arises, so that you can enjoy your dinner, and that glass of wine, so much more!

Wine 101-‘France’

France is one of the world’s finest wine producing regions in the world. Engrained deeply in French culture, wine is a huge part of what defines them as a country .Because of the long history with vines and wine-making, they have it pretty well figured out. In Wine 101 ‘France’,   we will discuss and sample wines from some of the major areas of France that are available here in the Nashville Market,  while wading through some of the label confusion.  Taste some of your favorite grape varieties from the home from which they came, and find some new ones you have never tried. In this two hour class, we will only scratch the surface of what France has to offer wine lovers; but we will at least get you started!


Call 615-440-5117 or 615-440-5100 to register by phone.

6:30-8:30 pm
