Wine 101: Taste Like a Pro with Wine Spectator’s Director of Education, Gloria Maroti Frazee
Session 1: Friday, March 1st at 6:00pm | Session 2: Saturday, March 2nd at 11:30am
In this seminar, you will not learn to juggle corks nor saber Champagne bottles. You will build the wine appreciation framework required for a lifetime of vinous adventure. (If that sounds too serious – think of it as just smooshed grapes!) As you taste a bounty of wine from around the world, you'll learn the tasting techniques used by pros, explore important grapes, identify key wine styles and determine your own wine preferences. Wine Spectator's Director of Education, Gloria Maroti Frazee, will attempt to cover most everything you’ve always wanted to know about wine, but were afraid to ask... including the key buzzwords for describing wine, how your senses interpret wine, the difference between everyday and special-occasion bottles, stemware, decanting and storage as well as tips for saving leftover wine, food pairing and ordering wine in a restaurant. Whether you're a beginner or experienced wine drinker, you’ll have fun, learn a lot, and take home handouts that you can use to share tastings with friends. Bring your best questions.
