Mid-range wine is a great option for those who like to have wine in the house for enjoyment before, during or after dinner; with guests; or to age.
This night starts with a glass of bubbly and a lesson in spitting technique (safety first!).
Next, we’ll talk about what goes into wine price and taste four examples of locally available mid-range wine. While we taste we’ll talk about each wine (style, region, grape, blend) and how to serve and pair it.
Throughout the tasting, participants will learn all sorts of things: how to store wine, how to open it, and how—and for how long—to store it. We’ll also bust some common myths about wine and learn the secret that will blow everyone’s mind (only available if red wine is included).
Finally, we’ll talk about selecting wines at bottle shops and the best resources online for purchasing mid-range wines.
Who’s This Tasting of Mid-Range Wine Good For?
This tasting is perfect for those who know they like wine but want to know more about how to shop for it. It’s also good for those new to wine who want to spend anywhere from $15-25 on a bottle.
Note for Hosts
This tasting lasts 90-120 minutes. We’ll send snack ideas (and simple recipes) well in advance. We recommend giving each participant an assigned snack to bring to keep your evening nice and chill.
