What you'll learn in this wine class:

Of course we’re still drinking good wine after the holiday frenzy has died down! The question is, what to open? 

Over the last couple months we’ve been pulling out special (pricey…) bottles with abandon, figuring now’s the time to share, not hoard, The Best. But truth be told, there are plenty of modest wines that deliver pleasure, complexity, and terroir, too. We’ll showcase authentic steals from around the globe – southern Italy and France are sure to make an appearance, and own Washington State way over-delivers. 

We’ll check out second labels (bumped from a winery’s ‘grand vin’), and gems made by cooperative cellars. Buying the least expensive wine from a great producer is always a safe bet… The best buys of 2018 are still out there, and nothing's more fun than bumping into a wine that tastes more expensive than it is!
