During the three-week classes at Brian's Wine and Liquor Emporium, fledgling sommeliers swirl and swish vino from the hills and vineyards of Spain. Week one consists of sippers sampling drinks culled from the northwestern region and Duero Valley, including crisp white wines from the Rias Biaxas and Mencia and Garnacha reds. Throughout week two, the fermented libations of La Mancha, Jumilla, and Yecla fill mouths with more flavorful notes than a taco shell filled with shredded sheet music. The third and final week explores the unique winemaking and aging process of the Jerez region of Spain as students dye their tongues with sherry and tastings from Penedes and Priorat. Newly crowned connoisseurs leave the classes with a copy of Shaken & Stirred, a guide to healthy cooking and drink mixing for fetes or private dinner parties.
