Jacquey discusses regional flavors, serving techniques, and how to determine a wine's taste from its bottle. Groups also sample tapas or cheeses with wines to learn about food pairings. Classes take place Monday and Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8:30p.m., and Sunday from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Jacquey, the Dallas-born connoisseur behind Proud Wineaux, can tell whether a wine originated on the right bank or left bank of the city of Bordeaux simply by tasting it. This isn't just a party trick or a way to navigate France while blindfolded; it's evidence of a decade spent up front and behind the scenes at renowned restaurants such as Nobu, Dean Fearing's The Mansion on Turtle Creek, and various New York City hot spots, where she shares her gifts as a wine and beverage consultant.
During one-on-one or group classes, she helps students explore the world of wine in a friendly environment free of pretension. "The moment you begin to release the fear of not knowing, the learning begins," she says on her website. She teaches her students to pair wines with cheeses according to their region or the texture of the cheese.
