Wine Appreciation Series: From Grape to Glass

This series will create an appreciation for wine in all its components from the terroir, to the vines, to the grapes, to the types of wines and their dimensions, to the regions, and how to develop your palate in tasting wines and what foods to pair with your wine selections. New World and Old World wines will be shared with Texas always in the mix- specifically Fall Creek. The first class will serve as an overview of the components of wine traits with a focus on taste such as acidity, tannin, sweetness, etc, as well as reading and understanding labels.
