Event Details

Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon are related, as the Sauvignon part of their names suggests.  In fact, if you cross Sauvignon Blanc with Cabernet Franc, the result is Cabernet Sauvignon.  Today, the relationship is more like siblings, and Cabernet is seemingly the bigger, older one.

In this class, we'll taste a world range of SB and Cab so we can taste how they are the same across the planet, but also how they are different.  Get ready to go deep into Bordeaux territory.

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!
