All classes are 7pm to 9pm

Wine 101:  Intro to Wine Tasting                            Wednesdays               Oct 1 and Oct 8
This is the most popular class at Harry’s Wine School. We offer it several times per year, always to a packed house!  We will cover everything you need to know about the basics of wine but didn’t know what to ask. You will learn the 5 S’s of wine tasting, the 4 taste zones of the tongue, the basic grape varieties, and much more. A selection of wines from around the world will be tasted.  This class is the foundation of all the other classes in our curriculum, and we recommend that even long-time tasters will benefit from it. The concepts and techniques that you learn here will apply to any and all future wine tastings that you will ever attend.  $50 for both weeks

The Bichot Wines of Burgundy                                   Wednesday                        Oct 15
Presented by Guillaume Suss, East Coast Sales Manager
Albert Bichot owns four estates set at the heart of four great viticultural regions that make up Burgundy: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, and Côte Chalonnaise. Each estate consists of vineyards cultivated with sustainable practices, as well as facilities and teams devoted to the making and ageing of the region’s wines.  Each year this estate has consistently produced burgundy wines of very high quality, and our event this evening will be your opportunity to sample a selection.  Guillaume Suss will provide an entertaining and informative portrait of a true burgundian producer as he tastes us through these wines.  $35 one session

Food and Wine of Germany and Austria               Wednesday                Oct 22
It is time once again for Chef Chris of the Fairfield Cheese Company to work his magic with a meal of several different courses each to be paired with the perfectly matched wine.  Germany and Austria produce a variety of great food wines.  The Rieslings of Germany have been wonderful for centuries on the dinner table, and within the last decade or so the Gruner Veltliner grape of Austria has become the dinner darling of many of today’s top sommeliers.  These two wines and several others will be on the menu this evening.  We’ve done these dinners with Chris before, and we know one thing for sure  – You Snooze, You Lose!                $40 one session

Wines of Spain                                                          Wednesday                Oct 29
Spain is firmly in place as one of the premier wine producing countries.  Both top quality and value wines are being produced from border to border, and this class will introduce you to many of them.  We will travel far and wide to sample a variety of wines and grapes with different flavors and styles.  After tasting these wines you will be able to determine your favorites as well as become quite knowledgeable about them in general.  $35 one session
