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


On Monday, August 8th, please join Spec’s fine wine buyer 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 that tasting may be). And Enjoying because there are things you can do to enjoy wine more without spending more money on wine. And you can’t taste, drink, or enjoy without Pulling the Cork!

This two-hour class will lead you through a tasting of 12 wines including red, white, sparkling and dessert wines. Discussion will include what to look for when tasting, wine and food pairing, wine serving and storage temperatures (and why they matter), proper wine glasses (why they are important and when they are not), pulling the cork (there is both more and less to it than you might think), and more.

Pulling the Cork . . . will cost $50 per person (Cash or Check) or $52.63 regular. The class will meet at 7pm on Monday, August 8, 2016 at l’Alliance Française. To purchase your ticket, 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).

As The Wine School at l’Alliance Française, Bear Dalton has been teaching Texans about wine since 1998. He has over 35 years of experience tasting (currently over 9,000 wines a year), drinking and enjoying, and working professionally with wine – including over 30 years experience teaching and writing about wine.

NOTE:
A lot of folks on my email list have been asking for a what-you-need-to-know-about-wine class for friends who are getting into wine. This is that class. Please forward this along to whomever you think may be interested. – Bear
