With Elizabeth Hans McCrone
Join wine educators in this highly interactive online wine tasting and education series. The online course series includes tasting, a discussion about the culture and traditions of the region, both French and local expressions of the fruit and a wine and food pairing exercise to round out the experience.
Explore the wines and history that make up east/central France in the famous region known as Burgundy.
In this course, we will be sampling both white and red “burgundies,” discussing their American counterparts and the foods that pair so deliciously well along with them.
You will be encouraged to share your own experiences with the varieties, as well as purchase the two class wine selections.
You must have the Zoom video conferencing application downloaded on your desktop or smart device to participate in the class.
The class fee does not include the featured wine.
Thurs., March 4, 5:30-7 p.m.
THIS CLASS IS FULL.
