What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

This lecture will explain what the main regions are all about, what wines are found in each one, and how to read their labels.

Everyone is fascinated with Italian wine - and why shouldn't they be? It's the one country that has, by far, the most dynamic variation of grapes & styles. It also has one of the richest histories of wine-making. But because of this, it is also very confusing. A focus on and tasting of 7 red wines will enlighten. There's so much more out there than just Chianti.

Class fees cover the cost of glassware and printed materials.

Aaron Epstein has been passionate about wine since before he could legally drink it. As a student of languages, his love of the grape was born in Spain, and fermented during a year living in Bologna, Italy. It has since led him around the world to work wine jobs in almost every aspect of the industry, before bringing him back home to New York City, where he now sells some of Italy's finest wines as a representative of boutique importer/distributor Omni Wines (an Italian wine specialty company.) Aaron is fluent in Italian, has been a wine consultant professional for over 10 years, and is an industry expert in Italian wines. He is proud to be part of Vino-Versity, and excited to share his experiences with you.

School: Vino-Versity

Vino-Versity is the answer to everyone’s question: "Where can I learn about wine?"

Vino-Versity is first a progressive retail store, where “wines are sold within an aesthetic that looks like a Mac computer store which has crashed into a wood & brick winery,” says Shari Schneider, co-founder...

Attended: Pairing Wine & Cheeses: Rind, Brined, and Wined!

The course itself was ok, but the only two seats available (admittedly we were a few minutes late) were in different rows, so my date and I were not able to sit next to each other. I never would have signed up if I knew this was going to be the case. When two people sign up for a wine and cheese class together, I think it goes without saying that there is the expectation of sitting next to each other. This ended up being an incredibly awkward experience.

Great teachers, good wine, fun time. Signing up for my next class!!!

The class went well I enjoyed the info. It was very useful.


Attended: Pairing Wine & Cheeses: Rind, Brined, and Wined!

The course started out a little "lecture-y" and quiet - but things really loosened up after the first hour and it was really fun, informative and delicious. The instructor was EXTREMELY knowledgeable, and the space was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to have an introduction to wine and cheese pairings.

This was such a great class! The instructor, Sheri, was extremely knowledgeable and made the class fun while still teaching us a lot. Great wine store and amazing professor! I highly recommend this course.
