Back to school

Vino’s wine classes return for Fall

Get on board: school will soon be back in session at Vino.

Right now — with the AC cranked up to 11, beads of condensation trickling their way down your chilled glass of rosato — it may certainly feel like summer, but this sultry weather won’t last forever. Before we know it there’ll be a chill in the evening air, leaves will begin turning a crispy orange, and it will be time to trade in the cut-offs and flip-flops for sensible sweaters.

While this moment can provoke dread in some people, frozen with fear as another long winter inches inevitably closer, for others it is a time of tremendous excitement. After all, at Vino Fall means only one thing: the return of our legendary wine classes!

Jim class: Vino's Mr. Hutchinson, DWS, presides over another expertly compiled lesson in wine-tasting.

Beginning September 17 with the ever popular Italian Wine 101, this Autumn Vino offers more classes than ever before, each focusing on a fascinating aspect of Italian wine and wine-making culture. These tasting seminars are a perfect way for casual wine enthusiasts to broaden their knowledge (and horizons), and for more seasoned experts to further explore Italy’s complex viticultural mosaic.

Under the expert guidance of our esteemed instructors, participants will taste a selection of fine Italian wines, in an informal atmosphere that can often lead to a lively and friendly debate.

Class participants generally taste six to ten wines served with light Italian antipasti.

The Fall 2008 Class Schedule, which this season also includes fun pasta-making classes hosted by Dora Marzovilla at neighboring I Trulli is available now at Vino, and on the classes page of our website,
