For $50, today's side deal gets you an introduction-to-wine class at Bet the Farm Winery & Gourmet Market in Aurora (a $100 value). The class meets four times over the course of four weeks. Choose between the following class sessions:
- Wednesdays at 6 p.m. on February 2, 9, 16, and 23
- Thursdays at 6 p.m. on February 3, 10, 17, and 24
Bet the Farm's four-week Juvenile Oenophile class caters to beginners' palates and noggins, making wine approachable and arming prospective fermented-grape fans with knowledge of varietal characteristics, wine-making history, and more. The first session tackles how wine tickles the tongue and tonsils. In the second week, grapes are at the head of the class. During third week, learn the effects of climate, soil, and wine-making styles, and ready the spirit for the final steps toward the status of Wine Wizard. Finally, the class pulls everything from previous weeks together, discussing how to best pair wines with their edible mates. On days of unknowable identity, to be determined by Bet the Farm, tastings and food pairings will accompany the study sessions.
