As the heat of Summer is starting to fade, it's time to announce our Fall Semester of wine classes here at the Asheville School of Wine! There are 8 classes lined up for you before the year is out.
Starting out, we have the Blind Tasting League, which returns on September 19th at 5:30. This interactive class will delve into the Sommelier art of deductive blind tasting. We will taste two whites and two reds in this fun, informative and funny class, as we try to guess the varietal and country of origin of each. $20 tax included!
Next, we will have our Fall series of classes, "Around the World in Wine." This four-part series will cover the famous wines and regions of the world. Starting with France on October 1st at 5:30, Italy on October 8th, Spain and Portugal on October 15th, and then Wines of the New World on October 22nd. These classes are $25 each plus tax or $85 plus tax for all 4 classes.
Expect to learn about the spooky things lurking in your glass of wine in the annual "Dark Side of Wine" class. Is your favorite wine made out of grapes, or something more sinister? Find out on October 30th at 5:30. $25 plus tax.
