Basics Wine Class at Blue Angel Wines in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Join Home Wine School at Blue Angel Wines in Williasmburg for a basics wine class, this April 30th, 7:00-8:30 PM. 638 Grand Street (between Leonard and Manhattan) Ticket Price- $40.00Ticket Price- $40.00

As far as I know, this is the only wine class happening in Brooklyn right now. The class will feature 6 wines from the store (3 whites and 3 reds). During the class we’ll taste through these wines, and along the way we’ll learn vocabulary that helps you describe what you do or do not like about them. The hardest thing to learn about tasting wines is knowing how to describe what is in the glass that you just tasted. In my experience working in wine, I’ve found the only way to learn is to taste something in the presence of an expert, and guess at what you think it tastes like. The expert can then taste the wine, and give you feedback on your accuracy. Much of the terms professionals use to describe wine can seem arbitrary and confusing. That’s because most of the terms were made up in the first place! Nevertheless, the wine profession has gotten to a point where terminology has become somewhat standardized, and you can classify wines into a few simple categories. What does an earthy wine taste like? When you taste one with me, I will teach you to recognize it, and that instantaneous feedback will start building your wine vocabulary right away. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact me by email at or by phone at 888.830.3505.
