We just did a wine class this Saturday and it was a great experience, so let's go to another one. I'm going to ask for advance payment on this one to make life easier. $31.50 to cover the Paypal fees.
Class starts at 2:30pm, so please arrive at 2:15. Our last class started at least 20 minutes late due to latecomers. The schedule says it'll end at 4, but expect to be there until 4:30 at least.
Olives, bread and cheeses were provided last time for us to snack on.
If I get a bunch on the waitlist, I will see if we can increase our reservation.
If you RSVP and pay your way and then you are unable to attend, I will not refund your money unless you are able to find a replacement (either through the wait-list or on your own). This is important, as it looks bad if I have a bunch of no-shows under my reservation.
Wine Class - Cataluña
$30/person, all inclusive
Gain in depth knowledge of the gastronomy, terroir, varietals and wine-making styles of Cataluña, Spain. This region is probably most famous for being home to the great city of Barcelona, but it is also land of Garnacha, as well as some of the most diverse, terroir-driven wines produced in Spain. Forever a crossroads between Spain and France, Cataluña houses more “Denominations of Origin” than any other Spanish community, and produces a huge array of white, rose, sparkling and red wines. One thing is for sure – Cataluña is in no shortage of talented winemakers and vine growers. Some of Spain’s most famous (and most expensive) wines hail from this area. This class will explore the ins and outs of this region with a tasting of some of Barcelona Restaurant’s favorite Catalan wines.
The style of these wine courses is designed for the beginner looking to become a professional, or an enthusiast looking to gain more knowledge and wine tasting experience. No one is born with the ability to decipher particular aromas and flavors in wine – it can only come with lots of practice, and students of these wine courses will gain great training in palate development. We discuss topics beyond the typical “abc’s,” often focusing on how to describe and understand unfamiliar wines and regions. Students of the wine class will gain experience in wine terminology, wine tasting and evaluation, wine-making techniques and styles, regions of the world, effects of climate and weather on vineyards, and over-all , interesting facts and knowledge about the wines of the world.
