Having been a wine enthusiast for several years (aka I am very good at wine drinking), I recently decided to up my game: attend a formal wine class. Through some browsing on the web, I stumbled upon localwineevents.com, a site that provides a listing of food and wine related events by your region/town of choice. After a quick filtering of events for San Jose, CA, I came across the J. Lohr Wine Center’s 2012 Wine 102 Education Series. Bingo!
My first class was a wine appreciation seminar hosted by Lawrence Lohr, Director of Wine Education, at the J. Lohr Wine Center. The cost was $30/pp. We tasted Pinots from Burgundy and California (emphasis on J. Lohr wines), learned about the soil and climate conditions of growing the grape, and discussed the tasting characteristics of the popular red. All in an intimate setting of no more than 15 people. I had so much fun that I’m looking forward to attending the next class – Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet!
Here are the details in case you are interested:
