Wine 201 - Beyond the Basics: A Look at Unique Grapes, Regions and Wine Styles

$165 Tuition / $145 for Members

Classic grape varieties and wine regions are classic for a region: they make great wines. But once you've got the basics down, an exploration of lesser-known wine styles can offer the jaded palate a taste of something different, and often at a wonderful price point. If you're ready to move beyond Chardonnay and Cabernet, Napa and Marlborough, this is the class for you!

Students are welcome to register for individual class sessions or join us for the entire series.

Who should attend: This class is ideal for students who have completed the Introduction to Wine Series, Understanding Wine Series, or other wine classes, but is open to anyone with a basic understanding of wines and wine tasting. An eagerness for learning about unusual and unique wines is a must!

About the instructor: Mimi Martin is director of The Wine & Spirit Archive, is a Certified Wine Educator, and holds the WSET Diploma in Wine & Spirits.
