Immerse yourself in wine to the point of grape-soaked socks with New York Vintners' masters-series wine classes. Pit the past against the present for future gain with Old World versus New World wines, or sample boot-shaped bouquets with greatest Italian wines. Other masters-series classes delve into sake, Iberian Peninsula wines, and West Coast "cult wines". Workshops go beyond the basics in subjects such as food pairing and wine list navigation. Or sippers can explore cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, or spring rosés with a palate-defining workshop.
Masters-series class sizes range from 25–35 people and include tastings of six to eight wines, whereas workshops are limited to 15–20 people and feature eight to ten wines. An expert oenophile is on hand in every class or workshop to offer valuable vitals on each wine, including its history, its character, and its favorite Beatle.
