15% DISCOUNT ON ANY 12 BOTTLES OF WINE - ENTER "CASE15" AT CHECKOUT
live remote session 7:30pm EST, Saturday, Dec. 4
Wine is like love: it's exception-making. Try as we might to reduce its living, breathing complexity to 'five simple rules' -type lists, we'll always start to trip over things that don't fit as soon as we take a single step off the straight & narrow. Sancerre is red. Not only is moscato not sweet, sometimes it's orange. Wines from the "New World" are not inherently riper or oakier than those from the Old. Wine professionals trying to build frameworks and fill in flashcards are as guilty as anyone of falling into the trap of "typicity."
Whether we're selling the stuff, studying it, or just trying to bring a bottle home for the holidays, what's actually helpful for finding new delicious things to drink, and drinking those delicious things? We'll rebuild wine 101 for a world where everything can be upside-down.
Each class kit serves 1-5 drinkers and includes three bottles of wine, food pairing and service suggestions, a weekly playlist, and a link to an hour and 20 minute remote wine tasting with sommelier JAMES SLIGH of the Children's Atlas of Wine.
Arrival in time for the live session guaranteed nationally via ground shipping for orders submitted by Friday, November 26th. James will send a pre-class note with the link and pairing suggestions 48 hours beforehand, and a recording and post-class wine info and drinking recommendations will follow after the tasting.
