This class is intended as an introduction to other types of wine for those who already know what they like, and for those who don’t to discover which varietals they enjoy most. 80 percent of the quality wines sold in this country are made from six grape varieties. We will conduct a tasting of one example of each of the 6 wine varietals from different regions of the world. You will be presented with the challenge of identifying the grape variety of the wine and asked to determine where each of the wines was produced. Most students will be amazed to discover that they CAN identify each wine just by sight and smell. Tasting the wines is just for confirmation! All 6 wines will be served blind to encourage thoughtful examination of the wine and stimulate discussion.
