The Joy of Wine

Wine is made to be enjoyed, but so much of what makes it special can seem inaccessible. This class will cover the basics of wine in the world today and discuss what is exciting and popular from the perspective of the budding enthusiast, business insider, and seasoned collector.

Learn about the origins of two of the most popular grape varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay), where they grow well, and why they are popular. You will learn how to describe the bottles they like and debunk some of the more popular wine myths of the world. Then we’ll take a deeper dive into some of the more traditional wine producing regions and cover the ancient and twisted world of Italian wine.

William Schragis will participate in a LIVE Q&A immediately following the pre-recorded lecture. A recording will be available to view after the live event concludes but you MUST register to receive the link.
