The gourmets at Taste unlock secrets to a sensitive palate via direct experience with wines from Sand Castle Winery and locally produced artisanal chocolates. Each 90-minute class journeys students along a sip-and-sample trek of eight carefully paired combinations. Filling glasses with varietals such as cabernet, chardonnay, late-harvest riesling, and pinot noir, instructors impart knowledge on wine and winemaking as they carve morsels of chocolate.

Chocolate delicacies, including almond bark, truffles, and fruit-infused nibbles, draw out subtler notes to showcase a wine’s full profile. As taste buds start firing and relationships between flavors emerge, students may inscribe their impressions on their printed list of the pairings, saving enthusiastic kiss marks for any discounted merchandise they may purchase to take home.

Taste

At Taste, the retail store for the storied Sand Castle Winery, rows of wooden racks display the winery's vintages alongside Di Bruno Bros. cheeses and gourmet oils and vinegars. Regular tastings and hands-on classes take place amid the store's marble countertops and vineyard-inspired artwork that is only detectable by oenophiles. During wine-pairing classes, students learn to coordinate nosh and nectar as experts present them with various combinations of wine and accenting fare, such as cheeses and fruits.
