Valentine’s Eve Wine Class by candlelight

February 13, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

 Twin Cities Wine Education presents
A special evening of wine, education, and romance
Valentine’s Eve Wine Class by candlelight

Valentine’s Day is a favorite holiday for wine lovers. We get to pop that special bottle, look into the eyes of a lover, and drift into the gooey-mushy-lovey-dovey state that kicks the endorphins into high gear. It’s also a day that is stressful for many: planning menus, making reservations, what outfit to wear, what’s the perfect gift, and more.
To help ease the stress of the holiday plus give you a super cool option to celebrate the holiday of wine and roses, Twin Cities Wine presents the Valentine’s Eve Wine Class on February 13th.
We will taste and learn about a classic range of wines associated with Valentine’s Day, along with discussing the history of the holiday (from its Pagan roots to celebration of Saint Valentine himself) as well as foods associated with the aphrodisiac rush we crave.
We will start with Sparkling Wine, of course, and learn about the history of the tradtional Champagne production method that allows us to see stars cascading in our glass. We will then move into oyster-friendly wines and discuss why certain wines of certain regions go so well with our favorite shellfish, along with a brief education on west coast vs. east coast and European oyster production. This will be followed by a flight of red wines accompanied by incredible cheeses, with a discussion of what cheeses to seek with which wines and why. The end of the class will be a short seminar on Port and chocolate, tasting wonderful selections of each and learning the terminology of what to seek out in your chocolate shopping.
Following the class, all students will receive a discount on purchases at North Loop Wine and Spirits to help prepare for the big day to follow.
I hope you can join us for this truly special class. Candles will be lit, beautiful music will be in the air, and love will be in our hearts (and glasses, and stomachs!).
