Wine After Work: Chianti and Chianti Classico

Learn the ins and outs of the wines of Chianti and Chianti Classico while tasting some amazing selections, diving deep with maps, and learning from Certified Sommelier and Wine Educator Shar Peterson. She’ll cover the key grape varieties, the geography, the culture, how to get the most bang for your buck, and much more.

Why is Sangiovese the main grape of this region? What are Super Tuscans and how are they different? Are there any other grapes grown there? All of this will be covered and much more including history, trends, and hints and tips for shopping for high-quality Chianti and Chianti Classico wines.

What is Wine After Work?
Wine After Work is a series of fun and quick wine classes at local restaurants all over the metro area. Conducted by Certified Sommelier Shar Peterson of Twin Cities Wine Education, they are a quick dive into a specific topic in the world of wine while tasting a handful of delicious selections.

What time are Wine After Work classes?
As implied by the name, we aim to have these be a fun after work event. The gathering starts anytime after 5:15 pm, class begins around 5:30 pm, and ends around 6:30 pm.

Is there food at Wine After Work?
A couple of appetizers or a cheese board will be ordered for the table, but this is not a wine dinner. You’re invited and encouraged to stick around after at the host restaurant for dinner.

Is there wine served at Wine After Work classes?
Of course! We take pride in serving great wines for all of our classes, always with top quality Riedel stemware. All Wine After Work classes serves a minimum of three great selections.
