What we tried:
We sat in on a wine class where we learned about grape varietals and wine regions, plus how to properly open and serve a bottle of champagne. No loud cork pops on our watch. After we corked the bottle, we had to have a little taste test.
What not to miss:
If you’re interested in the program, or just want to learn more, we highly recommend taking a tour of the facility. There are several high-tech kitchens set up for different types of food service training, classrooms, and a banquet room for front-of-the-house instruction.
What we’re still talking about:
Let’s be real here. We enjoy a glass of wine, but how much do we really know about it? After sitting in on the wine class, we feel like wine experts. We’ll have to try not to flaunt our newfound knowledge.
