TASTING WORKSHOPS, SEMINARS & CLASSES
Designed to help you move past your fear of the grape so you can focus on your love for wine.
Not every wine lover/student wants a wine certification or to take an exam, so MWWine School offers a series of seminars and workshops focused on taking the mystery out of wine … and putting the mystique (and fun!) back in.
These tasting sessions are designed to help you move past your fear of the grape, of the wine list, and of the wine store, so you can focus on wine love.
The sessions merge fun with knowledge through wine tasting games and exercises that will not only help to build wine confidence, but deepen everyone’s enjoyment of wine.
Sample sessions include Tasting Like a Pro, How to Pair Food and Wine, Going Sideways with Pinot and Merlot, How to Identify Aromas/Flavors in Wine, The Bard and the Bottle: Shakespeare and Wine, From Nun to Nirvana: Learning to Love Sweet Wines, The Best Barbecue Wines – (Put another Barossa on the Barbie), La Dolce Vita - Irresistible Italian Wines, Amor del Vino: Great Spanish Wines, and more.
