Basic Class
The Art of Food & Wine Pairing

A wine’s quality is determined in the glass…


Pairing food with wine does not need to be a complicated affair! And rather than a set of rules to follow, it is more a case of simply bearing in mind a couple of guidelines: Food: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, umami. Wine: sugar, tannin, alcohol, body. If the above terms have you scratching your head or perhaps they sound familiar but you are curious to find out more, this is the class for you! Our Sommelier will take you through 3 of the most common types of pairings, with many examples of each. And we will endeavor to answer all of your questions as you both discover what your palate craves and how to make eating and drinking as enjoyable as humanly possible. A fun and educational class for foodies and wine lovers alike!
