During wine seminars, a renowned sommelier elucidates the differences in production between red, white, and rosé wines, exploring the characteristics of different varietals, the basics of the wine cellar, the proper methods of preserving opened wine, and how to appraise a wine list quickly. Then participants taste exemplary varieties paired with cheese. Alternatively, beer fanatics gain insight into the ingredients of the sudsy beverage, a history from Sumerian times to modern brewing, and a seven-step brewing process with guidance from a Cicerone-certified beer server. Guests then taste a variety of styles, from lagers to ales to stouts.
Mixology Wine Institute
Mixology Wine Institute's oenophilic classes teach aspiring mixologists and mixonomists how to craft a diverse roster of libations while regaling students with the rich history and social function of the cocktail. The seasoned staff—which includes a resident sommelier and beer experts—dispense thoughtful nuggets of drink-dispensing wisdom, such as ways to add flair to a bartending routine, various wine-and-food pairings, and how to win a cocktail-sword duel. Each session takes place in the institute's well-equipped classroom, which simulates a real bar setting with working soda guns, sinks, and a full catalog of liquors. Pupils leave classes with the knowledge necessary to help bargoers make informed drink decisions.
