guidance from a Franco-American sommelier, you'll learn how to:

  • identify the quality and aging potential of French wines
  • read and understand a French wine label
  • match wine with different types of food
  • conserve wines effectively

... And much more! 

You'll taste five fine French wines in each class, served along with a selection of bread, charcuterie and French cheese. The course meets once a week for two hours for three consecutive Mondays, on December 1st, 8th and 15th, at 6:00pm.
