Recently profiled in Food & Wine Magazine (December 2004) as being among the top seven wine courses in America, our two-session course is based on the premise that learning about wine is more enjoyable when you taste the very best.
Our unique course presents over $2,000 worth of the finest white and red wines available, each carefully selected to represent the best of its type. You will taste more great wine in these two sessions than most people taste in a lifetime!
Among the world class wines you will savor:
• A Grande Marque Champagne such as Krug “Grande Cuvée,” Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot “La Grande Dame,” or Pol Roger “Sir Winston Churchill”
• One of the five First Growths of Bordeaux such as Mouton-Rothschild, Haut Brion, or Margaux
• A seductive red Burgundy from a top producer such as Vincent Girardin, Dominique Laurent, or Joseph Roty
• A Grand Cru white Burgundy from one of the region’s greatest winemakers
• A magnificent California Cabernet Sauvignon such as Pride Mountain Vineyards, Joseph Phelps “Insignia,” or Peter Michael “Les Pavots”
• A top-of-the-line California Chardonnay from a winery like Kistler, Kongsgaard, Marcassin, or Ramey
• A great Barolo or Barbaresco from a prestigious producer like Angelo Gaja, Bruno Giacosa, or Aldo Conterno
• Chateau d’Yquem, the greatest dessert wine on earth
In addition to tasting these, and other remarkable wines, you’ll come to understand how and why these “ultimate” wines achieved their lofty status and price. You’ll also learn the basics of wine etiquette, handling wine in restaurants, the economics of wine, how to start and maintain a wine cellar, and the fundamentals of matching wine with today’s sophisticated cuisine.
The Ultimate Introduction to Wine Course is as beneficial in social, business, and entertaining situations as it is personally rewarding. And best of all, we guarantee that you’ll have two evenings of hedonistic pleasure and fun!
