Description

Esquin is delighted to offer wine classes, perfectly designed to bring out the wine expert in everyone!

With this Introductory Series, sommelier Arnie Millan will be your guide as you are taken through the basics of wine. You will learn about the many wine producing regions throughout the world, sample the wines and participate in lively discussion.

This series begins September 17th and continues through October 29th. The program of six classes is scheduled on Sundays from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. in Esquin's Sky Lounge. Free parking is available in Esquin's lot on the South end of the building.

These fun, informal classes were featured in the Wall Street Journal and each class includes useful handouts. Arnie was recenjtly featured in a Seattle Times profile entitled "The finest Wine Mind in Seattle."

The series of six classes, including wine tastings of 8 wines during each class, will be offered for $39 per class or $225 for all 6 classes per person. Gift certificates are available.

Advance registration is required. Gift certificates are available.

Topics covered will be:

September 17th – Grapes, Viticulture and Winemaking

We will learn a glossary of important wine terms, discuss the major international grape varieties as well as the basics of viticulture and winemaking.

September 24th – A Tour of Spain

Spain’s wine history is the oldest in Europe and its wine regions reveal a wealth of indigenous grapes far beyond the famous Tempranillo. Explore Spain’s dynamic and exciting wine scene.

October 1st – A Survey of Italy

Italy is one of the world’s greatest wine regions with an unbelievable treasure trove of terrific indigenous grape varieties. We will cover all 19 wine regions and taste 8 delicious wines made from native grapes.

October 15th- A Tour of France

France is the touchstone for fine wine, the benchmark by which quality wine is judged. We will de-mystify and explain all their major regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Alsace and the Rhône Valley.

October 22nd – New World Wines (U.S., Australia, Canada, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, New Zealand)

If Europe is called the “old world” then this class covers everything else including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and China. Whew!

October 29th – Wine/Food pairing, Germany/Austria

Germany and Austria make some of the planet’s finest wines but few are aware of this. This class will definitely change your perception of these wines. The second half of the class focuses on food and wine pairing with a handout detailing Arnie’s Rules of Food and Wine Pairing.
