Event Details

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are two sides of the same wine coin.  While other extreme and extremely tasty grapes stake out the far ends of the wine experience spectrum, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir drive for the middle of the road.

Both of these grapes cross the white line with impunity, especially when you put them together with food.  Pinot goes with lots of fish and people don't think it, but Chardonnay is good with veal, pork, tuna, chicken, and other meats that can go red too.

This class will give you an in-depth taste of these two kindred grapes - in France they represent not just gape types but whole Burgundy wine regions.  In California's timeless wine youth, Chardonnay simply means "yummy white wine" to a lot of people, but the new world has its stylists too.

Bread, cheese, olives, meats, antipasto served with class.

A lot of people have never been to a Boston Wine School class before, so let me tell you what to expect.

First of all, we are a guaranteed 100% snob-free zone. No matter who you are. No matter how much you know about wine. We know how to make wine interesting and interactive for everyone.
Classes are small — usually 15 students max — and usually start with sparkling wine, then bread, cheese, olives and antipasto. Expect to taste 6-8 specially selected wines. Weekend classes include dinner, featuring vegetarian options.
Have a great class!
