"Aromas & Flavors" (WKS-2220), a new workshop, helps students identify aromas and flavors by relating to something experienced in the past. Participants will be swirlin', smellin' and sippin' to take their wine appreciation to a new level. Class meets Jan. 24. Cost for registration is $25.

"Introduction to Wine" (WKS-403) gives participants a little history of winemaking, and teaches to identify wine aromas and flavors. Participant will experience that buying wine can be as much fun as drinking it. Class meets Jan. 27. Cost for registration is $20.

"Wines of France & Italy" (WKS-754) takes participants on an excursion from Trentino Alto Adige in the north, to Sicily at the tip of the boot, with many stops along the way. Students learn about the world's most friendly wines. Class meets March 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 April 21. 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 May 19. Cost for registration is $35.
