September Wine Classes

In conjunction with our friends at the Ann Arbor Art Center, we're pleased to offer two classes coming in September.

Exploring The Loire Valley - Thursday, September 17 - 6:30-8:30 pm

People know the wines of Burgundy, Bordeaux, and the Rhone but often overlook the Loire Valley. Come explore the Loire appellations, taste wines (beyond Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc), and discover new French wines from this underappreciated region.

Wine & Cheese Pairing Class
- Thursday, September 24 - 6:30-8:30 pm

In this class, we'll provide a road map for matching various cheese types with wines. We'll introduce cheese basics, including milk types, textures and flavors, and then we'll guide you through choosing wines that complement each cheese type. And, of course, you'll sample
cheese and wine pairings, discovering matches that suit your own personal tastes.

Both classes will be held at the Ann Arbor Art Center and taught by wine yoda and all around dude, Ron Sober. The cost is $30 per class.

Register online at (click on Workshops to find the classes) or call the Art Center at 994-8004, ext 101.
