Calling all wine geeks! If all you know about Austrian wine is that the place produces a little-known white called Grüner that makes sommeliers swoon, you’re in for a treat. With invaluable input from Local Wine Merchant’s Mark Bright, we’ll get to know this mysterious region, idiosyncrasies and geek-worthy wines included.
Join a small group of Hip Tasters in the sleek new wine room at Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant as we walk you through the varietal characteristics, regions of origin, food pairings and flavor and aroma profiles of the wines of Austria. We'll wrap with a taste-off between teams to stir up a little friendly interaction in this you definitely don't want to skip. No apples here: all students leave with a very cool free gift.
* Third Times' a Charm - Attend any three Hip Tastes classes (Saturday School or Night School) and your fourth is free!
* Extra Credit - All wines will be available for purchase at a discount after class.
About HIP TASTES Night School
We've added Thursday night classes for busy Hip Tasters who prefer to get their wine on after work. Like Saturday School, HIP TASTES' Night School classes offer a more focused environment than our Friday night parties to hone your tasting skills. Led by certified sommelier, award-winning wine author and HIP TASTES Maven Courtney Cochran, classes are both fun and informed. Cheers to that.
HIP TASTES Night School: Limited attendance. Individual attention. Great wine.
