WineStyles' grape-serum savants pass on their sampling and coupling skills during wine tastings and classes. During tastings, guests submerge their senses—and sometimes their crisp white dress shirts—in five different wines, discussing their nuanced flavors, textures, and ballad-extracting powers. Sippers can pair juices with morsels of cheese, fruit, and crackers from an included snack tray, noticing how each bite affects the wine's character.
Novice quaffers can alternatively get their mouth's fill in WineStyles' beginners wine class, which tutors pupils in the basics of respecting geriatric grapes. Taught by an Atlanta Wine School instructor, the two-hour course covers such refined techniques as tasting, pairing, and describing, infusing students with the confidence they need to navigate a wine menu without a security cape. Students can couple their libations with supplied chocolates, nuts, and cheeses and, after the session, receive 10% off any purchases from the store's selection, including more than 100 wines under $25.
