In Vino Veritas: An Intro to Wine and How to Taste It

With Mikey Mikell, Wine & Beer Curator at Paper or Plastik Cafe

 

$10 Tasting Fee collected at the door (cash only) - Reservation Required!

 

Stumped by a wine list or stymied on the grocer's wine aisle? Join us to unlock the mysteries of the most popular beverage on Earth. From novice to aficionado, this lecture and tasting is for drinkers of all levels. The event will begin with an introduction to wine, including the history of viticulture, different styles of wine, the basics of making wine and simple food and wine pairings.

 

Then, comes the good stuff - tasting! Mikell will introduce the scientific aspects of how we taste, outline the importance of the 5 S's of wine tasting (See, Swirl, Smell, Sip, and Savor), and address the significance of "wine-speak" lingo. We will taste and discuss a total of 5 wines. The event will finish with a discussion of how we should buy wine at restaurants and stores, what to look for on labels, and a brief Q&A session.

 

Mikey Mikell has been the Beer and Wine Curator at Paper or Plastik Cafe for the last two years. He has worked in the wine and beer industry throughout California. Mikell loves traveling the world in search of new beers and wines. He recently completed a two month hiking and tasting trip in France, Spain, and Portugal, exploring regional wines and food while walking across the Iberian peninsula. One result of this trip was the Port Wine Sangria recipe he developed for the Cafe, which was recently featured in the LA Times.
