Pulling The Cork . . . and other things you need to know about wine

On Monday, July 13th at 7pm, please join Bear Dalton at the Wine School at l’Alliance Française for Pulling The Cork . . . and other things you need to know about wine, a one-night next-step into Tasting, Drinking, and Enjoying wine. Tasting because that’s how you figure out what you like. Drinking because drinking good wine is the object of all that tasting (however much fun all the tasting may be). And Enjoying because there are things you can do to enjoy wine more without spending more money on wine.

Bear Dalton has over 35 years of experience tasting (over 9,000 a year), drinking and enjoying, and working professionally (He’s the fine wine buyer for Spec’s) with wine including over 30 years experience teaching and writing about wine. In this two-hour class, he’ll lead you through a tasting of 12 wines including red, white, sparkling and dessert wines. Discussion will include tasting vs. drinking, what to look for when tasting, wine and food pairing, wine serving and storage temperatures (and why they matter), proper wine glasses (and why they are important – and when they are not), pulling the cork (there is both more and less to it than you think), and more.

Pulling the Cork . . . will cost $50.00 per person (Cash or Check) or $52.63 regular. The class will meet at 7pm on Monday, July 13th, 2015 at l’Alliance Française. To reserve your spot, please contact Susan at 713-854-7855 or coburnsusan2@gmail.com.

L’Alliance Française is the French cultural center in Houston. Located at 427 Lovett Blvd., l’Alliance is on the southeast corner of Lovett and Whitney (one block south of Westheimer and two blocks east of Montrose).
