Announcing a new Wine 101 class

The Wine School at l’Alliance Française presents

WINE 101: A Four-Week Course on Wine Basics

Please join Spec’s corporate fine wine buyer Bear Dalton for this four-week Wine Basics course. “Wine 101” is designed both for those just developing their interest in wine and those who feel the need for a good review to help organize their tasting and thinking about wine. This class also would be a good place to start for a service professional looking to move more into the wine side of the restaurant business or anyone looking to move into the wholesale or retail wine trade. As wine from all over the world is now so readily available, the 40 wines we will taste over the four-week class will come from all over the world.  The four-week Wine 101 will cost $220.00 total per person cash ($231.58 regular) for all four sessions. The course will meet at 7pm on Monday January 23, January 30, February 6, and February 13 of 2012.

Hello and welcome to I’m Bear Dalton and I will be blogging on this space about wine from around the world and a lot of other wine, food, and Houston related topics. Look for weekly features including Champagne Friday and a Wine of the Week as well as other posts. I’ll also be posting new events (classes, tastings, dinners, etc.) which can also be found under the Events tab and full blown articles (as opposed to blog posts) that can be found under the Articles tab.
