Since we can’t give you all tastings at our bar during the shutdown, Tasting Room Associate Emily will be delivering weekly wine education sessions straight to your living room! Emily will be drawing upon her experience behind the bar and researching some of the most frequently asked questions about wine. If you have a specific question on your mind, please reach out and we will do our best to answer during our Thirsty Thursday Wine Education sessions!
May 7th // Opening your wine and perfecting your pour: How do I open my wine without breaking the cork? How do I open sparkling wine or infusions safely? How can I pour a glass of wine without spills or droplets? What’s the best way to pour carbonated wine without losing any bubbles?
May 14th // Lets talk about tannins: What are tannins and how do they affect me? Why do some wines have more tannins than others? Why do they make my mouth feel dry? What are sulfites and are they bad for me?
May 21st // Pair like a professional: Are there any golden rules to pairing wine and food? What foods should I avoid pairing with wine? How can I pair food with a wine that I have never drunk before? What happens to the alcohol when I cook with wine?
May 28th // Storing and serving like a sommelier: What temperature should I keep my wine at? Should I drink it right away? Do I drink it at the same temperature as I store it? How do I know if a bottle of wine has gone bad? When should I decant or aerate?
June 4th // Take the guesswork out of glassware: Do different glasses really make a difference in the taste of the wine? What glassware should I choose to emphasize my favorite wine? Is there truly such a thing as a universal glass?
