Wine and cheese are a natural combination. They've been together for 8,000 years that we know of, and our species has been busy figuring out ways to make both of them more and more delicious all the time. The match of wine and cheese is partly natural and automatic, but by applying ourselves, or tastes, or abilities to understand and choose, we can put together pairings that are many times greater than just the sum of the parts
This class - limited to 14 students - will taste six major wine + cheese combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
At the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone. We believe that learning about wine and food involves learning about yourself, and we promise to challenge all our students to do that. Our goal is to help you understand deeply and communicate completely what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine or a morsel of food.
ABOUT SOLERA www.SoleraShrineToWine.com
Nestled in the middle of Rozzie Square, the store first opened one block away from its present location; “the place was small with a Mediterranean feel and it reminded me of a wine cellar.” In 2011, Solera moved to its current location overlooking the courtyard and surrounded by great restaurants and little shops. Like a fine wine, Solera has only gotten better with age. The shop just celebrated its 15th anniversary and has lived up to its motto as a Shrine to Wine. The store accommodates about 500 different wines and about 100 different craft beers from around the globe all of which are carefully selected by all the staff. Throughout the years, we have gotten to know the wine preferences of so many of our customers. A common phrase in the store is “you have never steered us wrong”. Roslindale residents make up 80 percent of the customers and the other 20% are people from adjacent communities such as, West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Newton and Brookline.
