Wine After Work: The Wines of Corsica

October 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education proudly presents a brand new class on a very old place…

Wine After Work: The Wines of Corsica
with Sommelier Shar Peterson

The island of Corsica has a long history, thousands of years, in the wine world. Established first by the Greeks and later the Romans, it has been on the crossroads of the European wine trade for centuries.

In this new class, we’ll explore the island, its history, and the many grape varieties it produces. Learn the key producers, the best wines available in Minnesota, and much more. Detailed handouts, maps, and discussion will, of course, be included along with a tasting of great wines and some bites from the kitchen.

We hope you can make it!


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 fun after work events. The gathering is anytime after 5 pm, the class begins at 5:30, and ends around 6:30 pm. You are invited and encouraged to stick around for a meal afterward, of course.

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 meal or 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. 

How many people come to Wine After Work?
Minimum of four people for a class, a maximum of eighteen. We want to keep these classes intimate and enjoyable.

Can we arrange a private Wine After Work event for our office or clients?
