Uncork culinary confidence with today’s instructional Groupon. For $20, you’ll get a wine class at Estrela Bartending School. Get schooled in wine-buying basics, or learn sip-related secrets to hosting the best dinner party at the class of your choice.
Oenophiles-in-training will appreciate Estrela’s beginner-focused approach to wine instruction. The Introduction to Wine course preps pupils on bottle-buying basics like how to buy for special occasions, order in public, read labels, and which magical phrases remove wine stains when recited three times. Spirited socials can opt for the Improving Your Palate class. In this session, experts will divulge details on how to impress your foodie friends, including wine-centric recipes, appropriate cheese and chocolate wine pairings, and the best bottles to serve with the main meal.
Drinking wine is like slipping a pair of rose-tinted glasses on your mind. Without woes about which bottle to serve or proper cheese and grape arrangement at your holiday party, you’ll be able to enjoy a peaceful pour stress-free.
Many inexperienced wine drinkers are intimidated when ordering wine at a restaurant. With the following basic knowledge, you can impress friends and order like a pro:
- Wine is a liquid made from fermented grapes that can be measured by volume, which is fixed by its temperature and pressure.
- Wine bottles did not receive their distinctive shape to conform to the shape of wine. Instead, wine consists of molecules spaced far enough apart from each other that its shape must conform to the shape of its containers.
- If wine is at rest in a uniform gravitational field, the pressure P at any point is given by P = PGZ where:
P = the density of the liquid (assumed constant)
G = gravity
Z = the depth of the point below the surface
