Wine 101 Class

Black Creek will be hosting Wine 101 starting in October. This 3 week class will be taught by Judy Haenni. Judy is an experienced wine consultant that will make wine tasting a fun even and not knowledge about soil, climate, grapes or regions. Just the understanding of what you do and don't like about the wines you will tast. Last year her classes filled up quickly and participants even got together for a wine tasting party afterwards.
Participants will learn whats tastes to look for in wines and what they like about various wines. Classes will discuss and taste:
Week 1 - Flavors prevalent in wines, wine books, "viewers", tastings of bubbly
Week 2 - What our taste-buds like, wine resources, tastings of white wines
Week 3 - Pairing of food $ wine & tastings of red wines
All the wines tasted can easily be purchased at wine shops in the area and a couple of grocery stores. All wines will be less than $25 a bottle.
Come enjoy, explore, and discover wines you have never thought about or tasted before. Bring 2 champagne flutes the first week for each person.
The classes will be held on Saturday October 23 from 2-4, Monday October 25 from 7-9, and Monday November 1 from 7-9. The cost of the series is $60 a person, $100 a couple - if registered before class. At time of class, $70 a person or $120 a couple.
