While it's cold outside, join us for the first ever, Winter Wines class.  During this hour, we will discuss four wines perfectly suited to enjoy with warm, hearty winter meals or sipping by the fire:  1) Champagne or Sparkling Wine  2) Oaked Chardonnay 3) Shiraz 4) Tawny or Ruby Port.  We will briefly review how to describe and taste, opening these wines will be demonstrated, as will an excellent and inexpensive option to preserve an open bottle of wine, and what glasses to use to best experience these wines. Food matches and classic accompaniment suggestions will be a central theme. Here's how to "bring a whole new game" to your next zoom wine party!
