IMBIBE ACADEMY: KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE
We're excited to release the next few months of our class schedule. Take one or take them all, we are pacing them at one a month to give you the chance to become a student of wine. Follow the links to our Evenbrite page or call us at the shop to book directly!
Some people hear the word class and think, yay! Some think, boring! But we like to think that our classes are intensely geeky but conversational, with lots of good feels for all levels of learners.
If you see a class you're interested in but the timing is bad, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about private classes. We operate on a minimum, so gathering a few friends together usually is the most fun and makes the most sense. We love to teach, so reach out and see what we can make happen.
THE CLASS MENU
You may have heard people talk about 'flawed' or even '****ed up' wines before. There are plenty of people ready to fluff their feathers by smearing a wine for this flaw or that flaw. Here at ye olde Wine Bottega we believe some of the most beautiful wines ever made are technically 'flawed'. Hot takes, we know! But what may not be technically perfect can provide depth, character, and sheer life force to wines. So we thought we'd help you get hip to some of the quirkier vibes available. Along the way we'll teach you what the confusing lingo surrounding them means, like Brett, Reduction, Mouse, and Corked. Spooky juice ahead, just in time for the Witching Season.
That's right, all this hubub started with a handful of daring vignerons in an underappreciated, overcast area between the Rhone and Burgundy. Dwarfed by its neighbors and cursed with the association of cheap, fruity grocery store wine, Beaujolais has emerged as one of the most engaging and ever evolving regions in the world for rad AF natty juice.
