Wine Education

Join us for our
Wine Education Series

Come take a wine-tasting journey through the hills and valleys of Italy’s wine regions and those of neighboring areas. In each of eight delicious hour-long sessions, Ben Zemmel will call on his ten years of immersive experience in enology (the science and study of wines and winemaking) to guide you through the characteristics of each region’s wines. And you’ll enjoy small bites paired with each wine.

We’ll taste unique varietals distinct to lesser-known areas as well as experiencing the characteristics of more ubiquitous grapes as they are vinified from one region to another. And we’ll dive into the rules and regulations that govern winemaking around the world and how regional mandates shape their respective wines.

The weekly course will meet on eight Tuesdays at 6:30 pm from March 19th through May 21st. Each tasting will be limited to just eight people, so don’t put off making your reservations! Sessions will be sold in multiples of two — choose any 2, 4, 6, or all 8 sessions. Any two tasting sessions are $60 per person (for both sessions). Click the button to make your reservations.
