Wine Fundamentals: Glassware and Wine Gadgets
January 29, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education LLC presents
Wine Fundamentals: Glassware and Gadgets
Includes a FREE SIX PACK of Riedel “O” Series glasses for you, valued at $72!
Walk into a high end kitchen supply store and there is a whole department dedicated to items surrounding the world of tasting and enjoying wine. But do these really increase your enjoyment?
What gear does a budding wine geek really need? The new Glassware and Gadgets class takes on this question head on.
We’ll start with the range of wine openers out there and detail the pros and cons of each.
Then we will move onto a biggie: stemware. A comparative tasting of wines out of different stemware will leave your flabbergasted but also educated about the role of stemware in wine. While enjoying our wines out of the ‘proper’ stems we’ll move into aerators (you’ll be surprised by my findings!), decanters, and wine chillers (yes, there is a proper and an improper way to chill down wine).
An extensive discussion about wine preservation will be included as well, showing you the best (which is also the least expensive) way to preserve a bottle to wine to enjoy glass by glass over the course of many months.
We will finish with an overview of the best current wine books on the market, and why certain books are wonderful and certain selections fall short.
This will be an exceptional class for anybody who wants to multiply their enjoyment of wine without wasting money on equipment and supplies you don’t really need.
You can expect the extensive Twin Cities Wine Education handouts, use of top quality Riedel stemware, and an intimidation-free presentation of the information. Twin Cities Wine Education classes are a snob-free zone!
Photo from Fodors.com article “Best Wine Gadgets” I endorse the use of two of these, and all the others don’t matter. Which do you think I’ll pick?
