Please Join Us for Our Wine Education Class with Certified Sommelier Dave Eriksen
May 30, 2009 at 12:30pm - 2:30pm - $50
Wine is meant to be enjoyed, and to enhance your lifestyle. Don’t let the wine-snobs out there hold you back from enjoying what you like. You will leave this class with the confidence to buy wine at the shops or restaurants without feeling like you don’t know enough to do so. We will cover basic history and wine production to learn where the flavors come from, as well as try eight different wines from around the world to figure out what you like and don’t like. We will talk about Tasting Techniques, Tasting Room Etiquette, Ordering Wine at a Restaurant, and how to use the Sommelier. You will have all of your burning questions answered. Make sure to have a bite to eat before class. Dave Eriksen has worked in the wine industry locally and in Monterey for the last 8 years and after managing restaurants in the bay area as well as Pebble Beach he is now teaching a wine foundations course at PCI. He is a humorous and dynamic instructor sure to make everyone comfortable and more confident in wine decisions after the class.
