Holiday Wine Pairing
From the absolute beginner who wants to understand the fundamentals of wine, to the wine enthusiast seeking detailed information to make informed purchasing decisions, this series of two wine tasting classes are designed for everyone.
Instructors from the Texas Wine School are noted for their mix of entertaining and informative anecdotes, dry wit and passion for all things wine. Add in the relaxed setting of the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center and you have all the ingredients necessary for an enjoyable evening and educational experience. The bonus is the great variety of quality wines that you get to taste – just that is worth the price of these classes!
With the holidays fast approaching, it is time to start planning the Holiday Dinner. This time-honored meal is that one time of the year when friends and family gather to share good food, great wine and memorable experiences. You may know which wine goes with which meat, but what type best complements turkey and stuffing, giblets and gravy, green beans and cranberries? And then the parade of desserts that follow? In this class, the intricacies of different wine pairing will be explored so you will leave confident that the wines you serve your guests (or give as a gift) will complement the food as well as the host!
Not just a practical knowledge educational program, come prepared for a fun and interactive evening as targeted food pairings and holiday party topics are explored. Various cheeses and charcuterie will be served.
