Event Details

France is home to some of the planet's most famous wines, and we could easily do a 52-week class and barely scratch the surface.  This 6-week overview class will take you on a tour of the most famous French grapes and regions.  You'll understand the difference between Burgundy and Bordeaux and receive a good grounding in wine grapes that are important all over the world.  We always have bread, olives, and antipasto with class, and naturally we'll explore the world of French cheeses too.

CAN'T MAKE ALL 6 CLASSES?  Not a problem!  If you know in advance you cannot make one or two of the classes, let me know and we can get you into substitute tasting classes those weeks you miss.

This class is great confidence builder for people who want to understand France specifically and "old world" wines in general.

Organizer

Boston Wine School

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!
