BCC to Offer Wine Workshops in South County
Apr 29, 2010

Wine connoisseurs, or adults simply wishing to learn more about wine, are invited to register for the following workshops offered this summer through Berkshire Community College. Classes, taught by Joseph Smegal, meet Thursday evening from 6 to 8 at Grape Finds in Great Barrington.

"Introduction to Wine" (WKS 403) gives participants a little history of winemaking, and teaches to identify wine aromas and flavors. Participants experience that buying wine can be as much fun as drinking it. Class meets June 3. Cost for registration is $20.

"Wines of the Great 48" (WKS 382) brings students on a journey across varied terrain to taste different wine from coast to coast. Class meets June 24. Cost for registration is $20.

"Say Cheese!" (WKS 623) teaches cheese lovers guidelines to choose the perfect wine to complement a favorite cheese. Class meets July 22. Cost for registration is $25.

"Food and Wine Made Fun" (WKS 474) explores the art of matching food and wine. Participants sample savory treats and tasty pours to help unravel the not-so-mysterious world of wine and food, and learn to pair the two like a pro. Class meets Aug. 19. Cost for registration is $35.

For more information, or to register, call BCC's South County Center in Great Barrington at 413-528-4521 or 800-816-1233 (in Mass only), Ext. 5201 or 5202. Participants must be 21 years or older. A photo ID is required.
