“Green Wine" Class  
April 22 - $35 one session
Zev Rovine, Zev Selections
With the rise in popularity of “green” wine, understanding the methods that fall under this umbrella term can be quite mystifying. Organic, organic grape, bio-dynamic, sustainable farming, natural/raw/minimal intervention/no addition, what do these terms really describe about the wine you are drinking. This class is aimed at clarifying each distinct method by taken you through the varietals, terroir and the rigorous process/guidelines each method follows in order to produce its categorized wine.

Rosé Wine Class 
 May 6 - $35 one session
William Miller, Harry’s Wine
Don't let that pink hue fool you, rosé wine is for grownups and serious wine drinkers love it! Color really doesn't matter. Rosés range from a vibrant, translucent red to an ethereal pale hue.  Our annual pre-summer tasting will provide an opportunity to taste an assortment of crisp, clean whites and fruity, flavorful rosés that are all perfect for warm weather sipping.
French Food & Wine Class 
May 13 - $40 one session
Deidre Magnello, DM Selection
By popular demand, a reprise!  We’ve been to Italy, we’ve been to Spain, where next?  France, of course!  Once again Chef Chris Palumbo of The Fairfield Cheese Shop will prepare a fantastic menu to pair with a selection of fine French wines.  Everyone was very pleased with our two previous dining events, and this night will be more of the same, no doubt!  

California – Vintage 2012 Class
May 20 - $35 one session
Michael Tobin, Worldwide Wines
As Wine spectator so eloquently put “Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Not in California, where most winemakers report an easy growing season with plenty of high-quality grapes.” With a big challenge of finding room for the large harvest, the reports on this vintage are those of celebration. After two tough harvests, 2012 yielded an abundance of gorgeous grapes and potentially outstanding wines, but we’ll let you decided as we taste through this vintage.

Kermit Lynch Wine Class
May 27 - $35 one session
Lisa Strausser, New England Manager
Kermit Lynch was raised in San Luis Obispo, but his name has become synonymous with French and Italian wines. Attracted by the Old World wine cultures of Europe, Kermit became a retailer, distributor, and national importer for authentic wines that express their terroir. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers. We are excited to bring you some of his “gems” and hope you too will catch his passion for these unique and beautiful wine styles.
