Class 8 - Tasting, Contrasting, and Pairing Balkan Red Wines

Balkan Reds – what is all the fuss about?  Explore and taste the wines of Serbia, Macedonia, and Slovenia paired with three small bites.  Learn about native varietals and wine-making styles of this up and coming region.

Classes take place every Monday at 6PM - $35 per class (plus tax and gratuity)

Advance reservation required - to make a reservation, please email or call 202-864-6445 between 5pm and 10pm Monday – Saturday.

Format:  Snack on some warm spiced olives and a half pour of sparkling wine while waiting for all guests to arrive. The tasting includes 3 wines (half pours) paired with three bites.  The wines and food will vary each class based on the theme.

Background: The goal of the classes to become comfortable with the vast world of wine, make wine accessible and less complicated. Attendees will learn how to read a wine list and identify the types of wines they like.  These are simply structured classes meant to encourage the exploration of wines.  They will not be technical or very theoretical in nature.
