Have you ever wanted to learn more about the fundamentals of wine? PYP has the perfect opportunity for you as we partner with Sommelier Adam Knoerzer.

Class Description:

Adam will walk you through some wine fundamentals to help you better understand how the grape gets into your glass, as well as how to taste it like a professional. More specifically, you'll get a window into grapes and grape-growing, winemaking, and you'll learn how wine pros can look at, smell, and taste a glass of wine and have a good idea of what grape it is and how it was made. You'll practice those tasting techniques together in class as a group, and any wine you have on hand will work for the lesson — the information you learn here can be applied to any style of wine. So whether you like sparkling or still, dry or sweet, red, white, or rosé, come join in on the fun and learn along the way!

Materials Needed:

For this class, Adam will be tasting one white and one red. He recommends the Empire Estate Dry Riesling 2017 from the Fingerlakes (white, $11.99 Chairman's Selection) and Bodega's Peique Mencía 2017 from Bierzo, Spain (red, $14.99, available in large quantities around regional stores).
