wine 101

Brandon Chrostowski, the fromager and sommelier at L’Albatros, told me about a new program he’s working on that I thought was worth passing on. Similar to his popular cheese tastings, Brandon is hosting a series of wine classes geared towards beginners.

According to Brandon, he’ll guide guests through the most prolific wine regions of the world in a “chic” setting.  Highlighting the core concepts over 5 weeks, guests will leave with an understanding of viticulture, vinification, major wine styles and regions as well as an
academic approach to tasting wine.

The cost for all five sessions is $150.00 and will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. every Tuesday Beginning February 16 and continue until March 16. Each session includes flights of wine from the region, hors d’oeuvres and study material.
Reservations are required; seating  limited.
