This past Saturday I went for the second time, (YES, I repeated a place) to Class by the Glass, and the main reason I went again, it’s because of how wonderful this class is!!
It’s difficult for me to remember things, that’s why I loved the idea of going back to this class and learn in a very casual way about wine. Today’s class was specifically about Italian wines and let me tell you, how interesting this was.
When I got to the area, I parked (for free) in a public parking lot two blocks away and then I walked to my destination already happy because I saved money. As all of the people who registered for this class walked in, we were greeted by the Class by the Glass’ staff, we got our name tag and sat down at any place we decided to in this cute, and very comfortable room, with comfortable seats and a table setup with everything we needed as you can see in my pictures. This is a great class to go with friends, to celebrate birthdays, bridal showers, to go with your significant other or just for you to have a great time, while you learn in an easy way about wine.
YES, it’s a class! With a projector, where they showed us more about the regions and maps of the wines we were trying and learning from. We were about 14 people in this class and got to try six different types of wines from Italy. We had the following and thanks to the class I learned that:
Pinot Grigio from Alto Adige: was a light, juicy, apple flavored and dry wine.
Prosecco from Glera Veneto: was a light, soft, ripe peach flavored and off-dry wine.
Vermentino from Sardinia: was a medium, juicy, pear flavored and dry wine.
Chianti: was a light, juicy, cherry flavored, toasty oak, rich tannins and dry wine.
Montepulciano D’Abruzzo: was a light, juicy, blackberry flavored, smoky oak, rich tanning, and dry wine.
Nero D’ Avola from Sicily: was a medium, soft, and cherry flavored wine.
As you can see we had a lot of information and they told us how to better understand wine’s components, flavors, and aromas. We also got to know how to pair them with food. Got the chance to learn tips on which wine to buy according to the occasion I need it for. We all had fun in this class , laughed, and participated so much!
I have a few tips for you when you go:
Write everything down, they will give you a little book to do so.
Read it all the next day.
Go to the store and buy at least a bottle of each type of wine you learned about,
On a small piece of paper write a few things about each wine, so when you have it you can better enjoy your experience with everything you learned in this class.
Thank you, Class, by The Glass!
