Introduction to Wine Tasting - Everyone loves wine...

Join wine expert and chef Ryan Smith as you taste your way through 1 sparkling wine, 3 white wines and 3 red wines. During the 2.5 hour wine masterclass, you'll break down the fundamental elements that affect a wine's overall taste - including grape varietals, geography, and the climate of a vineyard. 

You will leave understanding what it is you like and don't like about wine and how to describe it to accurately, leaving you confident to reach for the wine list at your next business lunch. 

The wine tasting class will include matching light snacks and all the funky ambience you can expect from Food at 52!
