Drinkers and Thinkers

Last night was the first of a series of classes I'm going to teach at Foam, located on the corner of Jefferson and Cherokee. The management has dubbed this series as "drinkers and thinkers", which I really like. Truth be told, this was the most laid back, fun "Basics of wine" class that I have ever done. 8 people attended, and we all sat around in comfortable chairs, just chatting about wine, and trying some new stuff. The cost was only $12 for 6 wines, and it took just a shade over 2 hours.
If you want to try wine in an atmosphere that is truly pretension-free, come check it out! We will continue the series next month (date TBA) with a class on "Old World vs. New World" wines. I hope you all can make it!

Today's wine recommendation- Since it's warming up a bit, go try the Napa Station Sauvignon Blanc from California. I like this because it doesn't taste like the over-acidified stuff from New Zealand. It is a bit rounder, has subtle citrus notes, and a green apple thing going that is really refreshing. It should cost around $11 retail.

Until next time, Cheers!!
